Tobacco T-204 Baseball Cards
Tobacco T-204 Baseball Cards

Description

Issued by Ramly and T.T.T. Tobacco in 1909 the fronts are black & white photo with a gold embossed frame. The backs have either company’s advertisement. These cards are not numbered. The cards display photographic portraits surrounded by a filigree-like gold design that was probably meant to look ‘Turkish’. They’re also embossed, meaning some of the card surface is raised. T204s can also be found with T.T.T. advertising on the back, however only about 1/2 of the set can be found with this back.

There are 6 square-bordered T204 card that are most likely proofs or used for promotional means. These square-bordered cards are significantly more rare and carry a heavy premium. The six shown are Anderson, Bancroft, Bransfield, Burkett, Dinneen, and Moran. All 6 of these players have connections to Worcester, MA, where the producing factory was located, which is the best explanation why these players have the square border.

Important Notes

Very condition sensitive, due to the cards being “fold-able”
