1914 T213 Coupon Cigarettes Walter Johnson (Type 2)
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $948.00
Graded VG 40 by SGC. Extremely attractive T213 (Type 2) of Walter Johnson, one of the key cards to this elusive and extremely rare tobacco set. T213 (Type 2) Coupon Cigarettes is one of tobacco-card collecting's rarest and most overlooked sets. It is also a particularly interesting issue. Similar in design and borrowing the same images as T206, the T213 (Type 2) Coupon set was issued exclusively in the Louisiana area, and is far rarer than its T206 counterparts. This T213 (Type 2) Walter Johnson card is exceptionally bright, clean, with perfect registration and bold colors. It is also a particularly noteworthy example in that it is crease-free. (A characteristic of T213 Type 2 Coupons is that they often have surface creases related to the production process; when they do not, as is the case here, it is unusual and very desirable.) The corners have even wear and the image is centered slightly to the left. The back is clean with very bold print. This is a very attractive example of a particularly rare Walter Johnson card, which would be a significant and worthy addition to any Hall of Fame, sample, or rare vintage baseball-card collection. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
