Any baseball card collector with even a mild, passing interest in vintage is aware of the T206 tobacco cards. I'm no expert, but I'd say the average collector is more familiar with T206s than any other pre-war set. But, how about the T207 set?
There seem to be much fewer of these out there than some of the other tobacco sets, but I could be wrong about that, or perhaps fewer are listed online because collectors aren't as interested in these. Either way, given how infrequently I see them in my price range I felt like this was a big win for my Red Sox collection for less than $30.
one guy out there who agrees with me. It seems his rally cry has gone unanswered, but I agree with him that this is actually an uncorrected error of sorts.
These came in a variety of backs depending on what tobacco product they were packaged with, just like the T206s. Apparently the Broadleaf backs are the most rare, but this Recruit Little Cigars back is kind of cool too.
So there's a T207 for you. What do you think of these? A little more unique than T206, or on the flip side maybe under appreciated or ignored with good reason?
