Graded VG 40 by SGC. Extremely rare sample card of 1911 T217 Mono Cigarettes featuring Hughie Smith 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, centering only slightly to the left, and even wear to the corners. The back is clean and well centered. A pair of light wrinkles on the front and a horizontal crease on the reverse account for the assigned grade. This is a very attractive sample card from this extremely rare PCL tobacco issue. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
