Railroad company passes. From the estate of A.B. Sharp who was president of Eastern Steamship lines for many years, including the 1930s and 1940s. He also was a famous big game fisherman, in fact the founder of the Sharp Cup Match Tuna fishing Tournaments. Please click on the pictures to see larger versions. Many different lines, Atlantic Coast Lines, Seaboard, Reading, Florida East Coast Railway, and others. .  Most about 2 1/2 x 4 inches, some slightly smaller. Light soiling, light wear. Most of these were yearly passes. I think these were given as a courtesy from one executive in a transportation line, to his counterparts in other lines. Your choice,  any card $8.50 each. Please tell me which letters you want. Item #5949
