To begin with, I fully understand that some of you on this forum do not associate the 68 cards of the 1910 Coupon (T213-1) set with the
T206 set. And, that's fine, that's your prerogative.

Nevertheless, from my study of the T213-1 set, this set provides some interesting insights into the printing of the T206 350-only series.
Circa Winter of 1909, American Lithographic (ALC) started designing the T206 cards for their 350-only series production.

For more information for those of you interested in this COUPON set, check-out this thread....FYI....1910 COUPON checklist (T213-1) (http://www.net54baseball.com/showthread.php?t=132360&page=3)

Let's start this analysis with the Major Leaguers in the T213-1 set. Depicted here is my hypothetical arrangement of these 48 subjects in the
T213-1 set, which were derived from an early press run of the 350-only series of the T206's. Here's my theory..coincident with the print run
of this group of T206's in the 350-only series (circa Spring/Summer 1910), American Litho (ALC) received requests for cards for ATC's new
tobacco brand COUPON. So, ALC printed up several extra sheets of these 48 cards and printed their backs with the COUPON advertisement.

http://photos.imageevent.com/tedzan77/images/3rdQuad350seriesSheet12xx.jpghttp://photos.imageevent.com/tedzan77/images/4thQuad350serieSheet12xx.jpg



ALC introduced the AMERICAN BEAUTY 350.....BROAD LEAF 350.....CYCLE 350.....DRUM 350 backs during the 350-only series press
runs (circa Summer 1910). Note that the T213-1 back is the same stylistic design as the A-B-C-D design. But, there is an incongruent
factor which suggests that the T213-1 timeline precedes the A-B-C-D print run. Byrne, Mowrey, and Rossman (due to trades) were not
printed with the T206 A-B-C-D backs. However, these 3 guys are included in the 48 card group of Major Leaguers in the T213-1 set.
This fact suggests that the T213-1 cards were most likely printed and issued in the Spring of 1910. Very, very interesting.

Hey guys....if any one here has a DRUM card of Mr. Chase please contact me. I will offer in cash (and/or trade) a generous amount
in order to complete this A-B-C-C-D sub-set.


ALC introduced the POLAR BEAR backs during the 350 series press runs (circa Summer 1910). But, only 9 of these 48 subjects in the
T213-1 set were printed with POLAR BEAR backs. These 9 guys include the six super-prints and Willett (these guys were continued in
to the 350/460 series). Plus, Engle and LaPorte (perhaps because they played for the NY Highlanders). It is apparent in the structure
of the T206 set that ALC favored players on New York teams (since this Lithographic firm was based in downtown Manhattan).


The T213-1 cards are probably the scarcest of all the white-bordered tobacco sets. But, if you have them, why not show them here.

Probably not, Ted. The pop reports suggest that each of these white-bordered sets is scarcer than the T213-1 set: T214 Victory, T215-1 Red Cross, T215-2 Red Cross, T216 Mino, and T216 Virginia Extra.

Maybe he just meant "White Borders" in the formal hobby sense, as the name of the set. 1992 Bowman has white borders, but buying them doesn't make you a White Border collector. Still, T215-1 is a fair point as I'd say they belong to the set as much as T213-1s do.

Ted, while the T213-1 cards are all major or southern leaguers there
are a number of confirmed two name T206 cards that are a major
and a minor league subject and some of the major league subjects
are T213-1 subjects so I don't think ALC used the same sheets for
the coupons.

this is a list of the confirmed two name cards with a minor and major
league subject.

Atz - Hoffman (Providence)
Butler - Raymond
Jackson - Hoffman (ST. Louis)
Livingstone - Maloney
McGinley - Speaker
Moran, Herbie - Arrelanes
Barbeau - Strang
Graham (ST. Louis) - Clark (Columbus)
McGlynn - Jones (Detroit)
Lennox - Clancy
Pickering - Myers

I only know of only 2 complete T213-1 sets. It is virtually impossible to put together this complete (68-card) set. Nevertheless, if you enjoy a challenge, I recommend
putting together a sub-set of T213-1 cards. For example, here is my Six Super Prints sub-set......


http://photos.imageevent.com/tedzan77/images/websize/1910couponcobb50x.jpg . http://photos.imageevent.com/tedzan77/images/websize/1910CouponChance.jpg.http://photos.imageevent.com/tedzan77/images/websize/1910CouponChanceBx.jpg

Note the paper loss spot on the back of the Chase (dark cap) card. Many of the T213-1 cards are found with a similar type of paper loss spot.

These COUPON cigarettes were packaged in cartons (11" x 3" x 2") labelled "COUPON" Cigarettes. My research indicates this paper loss is
due to some of the T213-1 cards having been pasted on these cartons.
No standard size cigarette packs of this new COUPON brand have been found. And, I do not think they exist. Perhaps, this is why ALC printed
these cards on a thinner stock of cardboard (these cards were not meant to serve as cigarette pack stiffeners).

Hi Ted,
Thank you for the excellent research. It is always interesting. I have to agree with you about the Type 1's being a part of the T206 set, and I also lean toward including the Type 1 T215's in with the T206's. Not that it really matters either way, because the designations will never change. :)

American Lithographic (ALC) printed 48 different Southern Leaguers (SL) in the T206 set......20 of which, represent the Southern Association.
ALC included these 20 guys in their printing of the T213-1 set.

One challenge you can try for is putting together a T213-1 SL same team sub-set.

Or, you can combine the T213-1 of your choice with its T206 counterparts to complete a back run. Anyway you play the game, you'll have fun :)

Hi Dean

Referring to the SGC pop report data....common T213-1 cards range from one example to 4 examples.

The data for Cobb is 8 examples. But, it looks like some of these examples may have been re-submitted.

Other HOFer's range from 2 - 5 examples.

Perhaps some one else can decipher the PSA data for T213-1's, as I cannot.

I also think Burdick would have included the Type 1 Coupons in the T206 set, if Coupon hadn't issued series 2 and 3 a few years later. That complicated the matter, and he made the decision to designate all three Coupon series together as T213.

Thanks, Val

This PSA data makes my point regarding the "scarcity" of the 1910 COUPON cards......

102 examples / 68 subjects = 1.5 card (average)

This sampling is even less than the SGC data.

Furthermore, if I recall Burdick's notes correctly, he dated all three T213 sets as having been issued "1913 - 1914".

Correct. He actually said 1914-15 but that, along with the back design and the fact there were three types of Coupons (Burdick actually only cited two), is the biggest reason I do not believe they were classified as T206. Even if he logistically wanted to call them T206s, he could not because of the dates he believed they were from.

Burdick was a genius to have accomplished what he did for the hobby (both sports and non-sports).

But, what is puzzling to me....is he apparently missed the clear distinction of the Brown-captioned T213-1 cards vs the Blue-captioned T213-2 and T213-3 cards.

American Lithographic switched to printing the captions using BLUE ink from 1913 - 1919 for these tobacco cards (T213-2, T213-3, T214, T215-2).

Agree - he was way ahead of his time.

In my version of the ACC, he actually did separate the two as he notes a brown font version and a blue font version. What is interesting is that he did not note two separate types of blue-font cards for T213-2 and T213-3 and only says there are two types.

He obviously noted the brown font cards looked like T206 cards. He even says in the ACC that these were 'as T206.' I believe that if he knew the correct dating of the cards, we'd have a different classification. But as I said, he believed they were from 1914-15 and, thus, had no option. There was no way he could call them T206s. That, along with the identical backs to other T206s (i.e. Cycle, etc.), printing in the T206 years, the same fronts, is enough for me to believe the T213-1s are probably T206s. Just my opinion and I know others disagree.

OK, so far we have posted 17 different Major Leaguers and 3 - Southern Association players in the 1910 COUPON set.

That's only about 30 % of the entire set. So, how's about showing us some more of these "rare birds".

A question for you. If for the purpose of this hypothetical a T213-1 was considered a T206, where would you rate it in terms of back scarcity ?

Sorry if you have answered this elsewhere, also thanks for all of your informative posts.

I think that it would rate after Lenox but ahead of Broadleaf 350 or Carolina Brights. Similar to a Red Hindu I suppose. What do you think Ted?

The supremely excellent T206 Resource shows that it would likely fall between Carolina Brights and blank backs:

Hey Bryan

My research leads me to disagree with the following "supremely excellent T206 resource" ranking list.....

1 Ty Cobb
2 Old Mill (Southern Leagues) - Brown
3 Lenox - Brown
4 Broad Leaf 460
5 Drum 350
6 Uzit
7 Hindu - Red
8 Lenox - Black
**Red Cross - Type 1
9 Broad Leaf 350
10 Blank Back
**Coupon - Type 1
11 Carolina Brights

The 1910 COUPON cards are tougher than T206 BROAD LEAF 350 and Blank backs.

I could go into a lengthy dissertation on this subject (but I'll spare you the "nitty -gritty"). And, simply state it just comes down to a matter of quantity.
There are approx. 190 - BROAD LEAF 350 subjects vs. only 68 - 1910 COUPON subjects (which were more short-printed vs the BROAD LEAF 350 guys).

Hi Ted,

Thanks for your thoughts! I was referring to the overall value of that site more than to the scarcity rankings themselves - I figured there would be some differences there and I certainly haven't done any research on that topic.

One question I have for you - what are your thoughts on overall numbers vs numbers with a specific back? To use blank backs as an example, there may be more total blank backs out there because there are far more subjects with blank backs than there are with "Coupon" backs. But, I think there are more examples of each Coupon subject than there are examples of each blank back subject.

Pat R
03-07-2018, 11:22 AM
I think it's probably close either way between the Broadleaf 350's
and the coupons. If you use the PSA pop reports the coupons are
a 1.5 average per subject and the Broadleaf 350's are 1.6 but you
see far fewer ungraded Broadleaf 350's than coupons. The blank
backs are hard to judge because there is no set checklist for them.

I posted a thread about the rarity of T213-1 back in May.

http://www.net54baseball.com/showthread.php?t=239838

Here's the summary:

I found in my research that the T213-1 T206 Resource ranking is pretty spot on, BUT some other backs, like the Broad Leaf 350, will surprise you in their rankings.

Based on analyzing the PSA pop reports (not an exact science, I know) I found that T213 Coupon's ranked 6.

Here are the PSA results:

1. Old Mill Brown- 1
2. Lenox Brown- 14
3. Ty Cobb- 16
4. Broad Leaf 460- 32
5. Red Cross Type 1- 34
6. Coupon Type 1- 96
7. American Beauty 460- 110
8. Uzit- 125
9. Drum 350- 130
10. American Beauty No Frame- 146
11. Piedmont 350-460 Factory 42- 150
12. Hindu Red- 160
13. Lenox Black- 196
14. Broad Leaf 350- 287
15. Carolina Brights- 436
16. Hindu Brown-1,066

BUT when I rearranged the scarcity list based off combined pop of PSA AND SGC you get this list:

1. Old Mill Brown- 1
2. Ty Cobb- 21
3. Lenox Brown- 28 (*SGC doesn’t note Brown Lenox in pop report so I doubled the number from the PSA pop)
4. Broad Leaf 460- 73
5. Red Cross – Type 1- 179
6. Drum 350- 218
7. American Beauty 460- 220 (*Can’t search for 1911 AB in SGC pop report so I doubled the number from the PSA pop)
8. Uzit- 242
9. Hindu Red- 277
10. Coupon Type 1- 284
11. American Beauty No Frame- 292 (*SGC doesn’t note No Frame in pop report so I doubled the number from the PSA pop)
12. Piedmont 350-460 Factory 42- 300 (*SGC doesn’t note Fact 42 in pop report so I doubled the number from the PSA pop)
13. Lenox Black- 412
14. Broad Leaf 350- 498
15. Carolina Brights- 700
16. Hindu Brown-2,149

Based off these combined PSA and SGC population T213-1 are now 10th or right around what T206 Resource has it listed.

Again this isn't completely accurate as we all know that there is a lot of cross grading and for the backs mentioned above I couldn't get an accurate pop number so I 'guesstimated' the numbers by doubling their PSA pop number.

Still, what I've learned is that a few backs were scarcer and some not as scarce as previously thought. The biggest surprises were T215-1, Lenox Black, and Broad Leaf 350.

Not As Scarce:
• Lenox Black could be 13th and not 8th.
• Broad Leaf 350 could be 14th and not 9th.
• Carolina Brights could be 15th and not 11th
• Uzit could be 8th and not 6th in rarity.
• Hindu Red could be 9th and not 7th in rarity

Scarcer:
• Red Cross Type 1 could be 5th and not 9th in rarity
• American Beauty 460 could be 7th and not 13th in rarity making it potentially rarer than Uzit, Hindu Red, Lenox Black, Broad Leaf 350, and Carolina Brights...admittedly it's hard to tell though because PSA only recently broke down the different AB designations. So this is a very rough estimate.

Spot On:
• Coupon Type 1 is in fact accurately around 10th in scarcity as T206 Resource has noted

Hi B. Schneider

Regarding the 1910 COUPON cards......I differ with your analysis on the ranking of these cards. Why I disagree is this....using their Pop Report data can be misleading
because many of them have been "crossed-over" to obtain a higher grade. For example, here's my Chance.....a fine looking card which would under normal circumstances
be expected to get a higher grade than its 1.5 grade. I know this for a fact, since I have discussed this "cross-over effect" with others who collect the 1910 COUPON cards.

http://photos.imageevent.com/tedzan77/images/websize/1910CouponChance.jpg.http://photos.imageevent.com/tedzan77/images/websize/1910CouponChanceBx.jpg

However, higher grades are seldom realized because of the thinner stock of cardboard that these cards were printed on. So, in any event the Pop #s are exaggerated.



Regarding the AMERICAN BEAUTY 460 cards......your analysis on these T206's is spot on. I've been collecting this sub-set for 12 years; and, I still need 3 cards.

I'm sure there is a "cross-over effect" but very little when it comes to T213-1 Coupons. I don't think that too many people are looking for a slight bump in grade because it's easy to look at any T213-1 and see that it deserved the low grade due to the flimsy nature of the card. And bumping a T213-1 up a grade isn't going to have the same bump in price as a more collected rare T206 back like say a Broad Leaf or Drum.

Still, t213-1 need more love. It's definitely a T206...and so are T215s.

My memory is a little hazy, but I was at or around mid to upper 50's on this set at one time... About a decade long vigorous pursuit until I petered out. I still love these rare gems. I think I am sitting on 21 of these cards now. Here is one of my favorites in the set (with paper on the back where it was probably stuck to the Coupon box end as there are a majority of examples missing paper in the same place on the reverse or have paper attached to them like this one) ... also a RPPC of a New Orleans Store with boxes of Coupons in the background - Just Imagine how many cartons were in each box (Perhaps 1 Coupon Card per Carton):

they are exceptionally rare.
