I own these two T215 pirate back baseball cards, and I picked up (off BST the other day) this other pirate back, although I dont know what you call the front. Notice the differences in the cigarette packs on the back. I have seen other pirate backs with yet different back variations. Show us some Pirates!

I wish I had some Pirate baseball cards to show you. However, I do have some of the Chinese backs.

The price guide is from the 2009 Murray's Cigarette card guide. It looks like several different sets were made.

There you go Rick, nice!! I wonder why the baseball cards are the only backs that don't show the cigarettes busting out of the pack -- a better pic IMO. And the cannon is different and the sword and the pirate looks fuller, but all the same company and location. Is it possible that the baseball Pirates were printed somewhere different or at a different time?

Steve, love that split back Pirate.

Steve, you got the split level Pirate? Great card. Maybe you should do a Meyers back run.

I've been tempted. I have the hard ones down. :)

I had a great transaction with a board member for the Meyers, and I sent it to PSA for the holder.

That's a great Merkle!

One of the other backs with the Chinese scenes that I always got a kick out of:
