Trying to complete the collection.

To my knowledge, the Associated Oil booklets/schedules ran from 1925-1959.

I, unfortunately, have no knowledge pertaining to the length of time Seaside produced theirs as I have seen only 1.

Currently, I own Associated's 1928, 1931-1952 and 1956. Therefore, I want to buy 1925-1927, 1929, 1930, 1953-1955 and 1957-1959. If anyone wants to see pictures of the ones I have, I am happy to share as they are some of my favorite smalls.

I would like to also purchase any Seaside Oil Co. booklets as I have yet to obtain a single one.

Do the Associated ones look like a little fan about 5" tall?
It might be a good idea to post some pictures of what you are looking for.

Here are mine. The ones I own are from 1928 to 1956 (minus 1930, '31, '32 and 1942.. there were no schedules printed during '43 and '44)

Believe it or not Bob, they did print them during 1943 and 1944, I will post a photo so you can check them out. I figured all war years went unprinted until I recently stumbled on a collection from an Associated Oil higher-up. What is the large football one between '28 and '33, I have never seen that before. And I can't believe you landed those two baseball programs! I have been trying to find those for some time, too cool.

And here is the only Seaside booklet I came across and, unfortunately, it's only a scan from Getty.

Strange, I read in an Associated Oil Newsletter that the Company was suspending items like maps, football schedules and the like...During WWII...

The long one is from 1929..

That is strange. I wish I had more info on them, but they definitely check out. The ads are all about supporting the war - my favorite advocates the "citizen soldier" - and the schedules all are correct. For all I know, they may never have been given away and sat in storage somewhere. I wish the individual was alive who owned them, but he has long since passed.

Bob,
I rarely thumb through these as my fat fingers and occasional clumsiness lead to a tear here and a tear there so this may be a guess, but to my knowledge these are the only "fold-out" booklets. Less paper used to make them screams "rationing" to me, but I am not sure off the top of my head if paper was rationed like other resources. Take a look:

And my apologies for not originally including the pictures, Husky, that was my bad. Yes they are about 5". From 1933-1959 they measured a bit over 4.5" by a bit under 3". Before 1933, it appears each year varied as you can see by mine and Bob's photos. Bob's 1929 is the only map-sized one I have seen, but this thread may be the most Associated Football booklets in one spot, haha. I have no clue what the sizes of 1925, 1926, 1927, or 1930 are.

Here is the Schedule, Huskybob was describing.

From 1930 and imo, has a very unique shape and message:

hosting imagescertificity.com

On one side it lists the Teams of the Western Conference, for those looking for their Team:

post imagescertificity.com

On the other side, it lists the Games being played by the Date, with there location: (in case one didn't have a specific Team they rooted for, but just wanted to watch in person or wanted to listen to a Game(s) on the Radio)

And lastly, the Schedule fills an empty spot in my "collection"...

Thats awesome! I can't say I knew they existed, definitely a unique message, a bit of a pun. So is that the schedulet for 1930, or was that a secondary schedule to a booklet? Always learnimg something new from your collection.

Until; you, AL or myself find a 1930 schedule I can't be sure? After looking at my 1929 "Large Map' of a schedule.. I believe that someone decided to "micro-size" what seemed to be getting away from Associated....

My 1929; Schedule when unfolded completely is 2' wide x 9" tall.
