The recent find was found with other cards that were clearly distributed with tobacco. The person who collected them could have acquired the Cobb from a promo of sorts but seems more plausible it was obtained in the same manner as the others it was mixed in with. Not hard evidence but lends credence to the Cobb back being at least partly distributed in the tin.

I see no mention of any baseball cards in the product. Don't you think that would be mentioned as popular as t206s were? I see no reason why ATC would allow Penn to use their image to promote the Ty Cobb brand while they were under threat of antitrust litigation from the government. They were successfully hiding their relationship, owning of Penn stock, and keeping it out of the case.

ATC tobacco brand...... Ty Cobb Smoking Tobacco

. . . .

American Litho printed the red Cobb in the Spring of 1910. Initially for the 350 series of the T206 set. This timeline coincides
with ATC's introduction of the Ty Cobb Tobacco brand.

As I have stated throughout this thread, I consider this card a "T206".

As popular as the ty cobb tobacco seems to have'd think there'd be way more tins...and if cards were inserted inside...there'd be way more cards out there.
