Graded NM 84 by SGC. One of only two examples graded by SGC at this level with none higher. Superb high-grade example of George Paskert from the elusive and extremely rare Coupon Cigarettes (Type 3) tobacco-card set. T213 (Type 3) is a very interesting issue. Similar in design and borrowing the same images as T206, T213 (Type 3) is believed to have been issued exclusively in the Louisiana area, and was the very last of the traditional tobacco-card sets. The set was issued in 1919. T213 (Type 3) Coupons are far rarer than their T206 counterparts, and one of tobacco-card collecting's most overlooked issues. The offered example is crisp and clean, with centering slightly toward the upper right and four square corners showing wear at the extreme tips. The boldly printed reverse is centered entirely to the top. This is an outstanding example which would be a worthy addition to any sample or rare vintage baseball-card-collection. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
