I was told to post here by aquarius31

I have the opportunity to purchase these cards, but obviously I need to be extremely cautious moving on because I don't know much about tobacco cards or how to authenticate them. I've dealt with the guy before for some 50's-70's stars and he gave me the opportunity to purchase these cards.

My main question here would be authentication, the prices are pretty fair if the cards grade out, but obviously "if it is too good to be true it probably is"

Some of them had paper loss on their back, and they come from a long time collector in arizona but my concerns are what they are.

Let me know what you think.


All the pictures that I have been provided with can be located here...

They are legit. Nice cards. Bummer about the backs but they are super cool.

From what I can tell, all of these are real. Unless my eyes are bad, the font on the front is a gray-ish brown, not black. That's the first thing I look for. The fronts on the Mathewson and Johnson are nice!
