I saw a young kid wearing one of these last night. Thought it was kind of funny. The designer must collect T206.

you should get out more. True story - when I first started buying baseball cards - wherever I went - I fixated on the corners and centering of paper things :-)

Maybe I should have included a Piedmont back in my first post. The design is for sure based on a Piedmont backed T206.

No doubt based on that Piedmont back. I think some other backs (EPDG, RED Hindu, CB...) might even look better.

Hard not to see Piedmont in that, Luke. I believe this is the guy that is behind the Obey designs (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shepard_Fairey) - he's pretty famous, actually, and was the guy who did the Obama/Hope image that took off. Interesting enough, he's been involved in some Fair Use issues before related to that.

Also don't know if he collects or not but he was commissioned by Upper Deck to do some stuff as well.

Oh jeeze cigarette cards are in now time to sell them and find something hipsters won't want.
