I thought I'd take a look at my vintage card album and scan a few oldies. Here are some T205 Brooklyn Superbas (Dodgers) cards. These are little tobacco cards that were inserted within packs of various brands of American Tobacco Company products in 1911.
There are a total of 220 cards in the set, and 15 Brooklyn cards to chase after. Two players have two cards in the set, Cy Barger and Kaiser Wilhelm. Unfortunately, I only have 5 of them in all, so I have a long way to go before I complete my set.
So far, my collection includes George Bell, Bill Bergen, Nap Rucker, Ed Lennox, and John Hummel. These are all common players and would typically sell between $20 to $35 a piece in their current condition. More likely on the low end when considering how many creases are evident.
As you can see, the reverse of the cards include a small advertisement and a player biography. Click any pic to embiggen.
