Graded VG 40 by SGC. Extremely attractive T213 Coupon Cigarettes (Type 3) of Joe Tinker (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. This card is crisp and clean, with bright colors and flawless registration. The corners are square with light touches of wear at the very tips (a bit more to the lower left). Centered slightly to the bottom left, with a pair of light wrinkles in the upper right corner. The reverse is clean with a well-centered advertisement. A couple tiny dents to the reverse are mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy. T213 (Type 3) Coupons are one of tobacco-card collecting's most overlooked issues. This very attractive example of a significant and rare Joe Tinker card would be a worthy addition to any Hall of Fame, sample, or rare vintage baseball-card collection. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
