Graded EX 60 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with just one higher! Extremely attractive T213 Coupon Cigarettes (Type 3) of Eddie Collins (Chicago), one of the key cards to this elusive and extremely rare tobacco set. T213 (Type 3) Coupon Cigarettes are one of the most unusual and overlooked of all tobacco-card issues. Issued in 1919, it was the very last of the traditional tobacco-card sets. Very similar in design and borrowing images from the T206 set, T213 (Type 3) Coupon cards are believed to have been issued exclusively in the Louisiana area. The offered T213 (Type 3) of Eddie Collins is a very attractive example that presents far better than suggested by its technically accurate assigned grade. It is bright and clean, with a deep red background, and flawless registration. The corners are square with even, very light touches of wear. Centered to the bottom left, with a tiny wrinkle in the lower right corner. The reverse is clean with a perfectly centered advertisement. T213 (Type 3) Coupons are one of tobacco-card collecting's most overlooked issues. This very attractive example of a significant and rare Eddie Collins card would be a worthy addition to any Hall of Fame, sample, or rare vintage baseball-card collection. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
