A smaller exterior label with baseballs and bats appears on the side of the box. 3) Circa 1910 "Lookout Crooks" manufactured by Stagmaier & Co. of Chattanooga, with an illustration of a pitcher, batter, and catcher on both the interior paper label and on top of the lid. 4) 1910 "Three Bagger" Wooden Cigar Box.
