Graded VG 40 by SGC. Only one example graded higher by SGC! Extremely rare sample card of 1911 T217 Mono Cigarettes featuring Bert Delmas of Los Angeles. The reverse of the card has the Mono Cigarettes advertisement in bold blue printing. The 25-card T217 Mono Cigarettes set is one of the rarest of all Pacific Coast League issues and also one of the rarest of all 1910-era tobacco-card issues. The card presents beautifully, with a crisp image, light wear to the corners, a tiny surface wrinkle on the right border (noticeable only under close inspection), and centering to the extreme bottom with the caption letters just touching the edge of the card (the letters are not cut off). The back is clean and crisp. This is a very attractive card which has a much stronger overall appearance at a glance than its assigned grade suggests. An exceptional sample card from this extremely rare PCL tobacco issue. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
