Thanks for uploading File:Bobby Dodd Jr football card.jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. (You can get a list of all your uploaded files using the Gallery tool.) Thank you.

Bobby Dodd football card and Bobby Dodd Jr. football card[edit]

User:JuTa; I saw the notices posted on my talk page regarding Bobby Dodd football card and Bobby Dodd Jr. football card. The instructions include the following "you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page)." I followed these instructions for both images. Also, these football cards were published in 1955 and 1961 respectively. The original copyright for these cards expired after 28 years per this website. Finally, the images of these cards can be found on E-Bay and many other card trading websites, so these images are in the public domain. These images are currently being used on Bobby Dodd article on Wikepedia. Therefore please let me know what is required to keep these images from being removed from Wikimedia Commons? Thanks in advance for your help - Mistercontributer (talk) 02:25, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi, the main problem with your images is, that there is just no license template on the description pages. Every image on Commons has to use one or multiple of those templates, which are valid for the imdividual image. In your case it woul be most probarbly {{PD-US-not renewed}}. But normaly this requires some research that the copyright has been realy not been renewed. You better ask on Commons:Help desk because I don't know how to do this research. Once this has been done successfully you can put the license template onto th description pages an remove th problem tags. regards. --JuTa 04:52, 6 October 2013 (UTC)
The above was copied from User:JuTa talk page. Please let me know how to complete the required research described above to determine whether or not the copyright was renewed for these football cards? Thanks - Mistercontributer (talk) 13:12, 6 October 2013 (UTC)
OK-I see that the maker of the cards was Topps, so I went to http://www.copyright.gov (US copyright website) and did a search there using Topps under the "Name" (name of the company) option. I went through their listings for Topps and I didn't find any renewals for any of their cards, so I licensed them both for you as copyright not renewed.
