Great stuff, Pat.

An original T206 collection from South Carolina, which I acquired back in 2006 of approx. 400 cards essentially reinforces your research.
This collection of assorted PIEDMONT 150 and 350 cards included 29 - OLD Mill Southern Leaguer's. The owner of these cards got them
from his Grandfather, who he said collected them in his youth exclusively in 1909.

Thanks Ted. Finding the ad has me wondering if the initial Old Mill SL printing
mirrored the Hindu and brown Old Mills and were lacking the same 14 subjects.
You don't happen to have a list of the 29 Old Mill Sothern Leaguers from that
find do you?

I was thinking the same as you are; and, I have searched for my list of those 29 - OLD Mill Southern Leaguer's. But, so far have been unable to find it.

I will keep on searching.

The following is an excerpt from the Net54 thread (Aug 2006) that I posted in which I reported of my 400+ T206 find..... http://www.net54baseball.com/showthread.php?t=82314

" A month ago I was fortunate enough to acquire a 446 card T206 collection......409
cards are Piedmont 150/350....5 are P460-only....and 26 are Southern Leaguers
with OLD MILL backs. It was the original collection of the seller's Grandfather; who
grew up in South Carolina (and apparently his father strictly enjoyed Piedmont Cigs).
Also, there are 6 Sweet Cap 350/460 Fac. 42 cards. Some cards are Vg/Ex, but most
are Ex.....a well preserved collection with many HOFers.
"

At that time, I was deeply involved in completing my all-PIEDMONT set and I think I failed to record the 26 (corrected) OLD MILL Southern Leaguer (SL) cards. As I cannot find any
information regarding them. Although, I do recall this SL group included Breitenstein, Shaughnessy, Foster, and Revelle.

Thanks for checking Ted. It would have been nice to know the 26 OM SL players since they all came from an original South Carolina collection.

I think it's interesting that the 1909 Eli Witt ad specifies "players of the Southern and South Atlantic Leagues".

There have been a few posts in the past about the number of different
Old Mill ads from 1910 but I didn't realize how many different ads
there actually were and what's interesting is the difference in the Old Mill
ads in Texas papers compared to the Old Mill ads from all the other states.

All of the Ads in the Texas papers state there are Texas League players
in each package while the ads in all other papers from NC, SC, VA, ect...
only mention that they contain baseball pictures.

I'm still going through all the ads and when I finish I will post them.
What I found interesting is that most of the Texas ads use the same
picture as the ads in other states but the wording is different and
includes the statement of the Texas League players.

Most of the ads from the non Texas states I've checked so far ran in the
spring of 1910 while the Texas ads ran in the late fall but these two
that used the same picture ran a month apart.

I feel like a jackass after my last post about the Old Mill ads. I visit
and use t206resource all the time and I've visited the advertisement
section several times but until last night I never noticed the galleries for the
Sporting Life, Hindu, Old Mill and Piedmont ads.

The Old mill gallery has 26 different ads.
http://t206resource.com/Old%20Mill%20Ad%20Gallery.html

Jim and Tim did a great job on the ads and I would like to
add some new information to theirs.

All 26 of the ads have a matching ad that was printed in Texas newspapers
with the exact picture but different wording and all the Texas paper ads
state that the packs contain Texas League baseball pictures

All the Texas Ads are on the right

9-12.jpg
13-16.jpg
17-20.jpg
21-24.jpg

The earliest Texas ad I found appeared in the Austin Statesman on Sept. 7 1910 the first non Texas ad appeared in a District of Columbia and Virginia
newspaper on March 1 1910. The last Texas ad appeared in the El Paso Herald on Dec 9 1910 and the last non Texas ad was in a Henderson NC paper on
Sept. 29 1910.

After the Dec. 9 I didn't find any Old Mill ads until this one
that appeared in the Galvelston daily news on Feb 14 1911
that made no mention of baseball pictures.

The early Old Mill Ad and the old Mill ads in the Texas papers support what
Scot Reader wrote about the Southern Leaguer's in his inside T206 publication.

Here what Scot wrote in his publication

img720.jpg
img721.jpg
img722.jpg

The August 14 1909 ad only mentions Southern and South Atlantic
League players.
img650.jpg

While The Old Mill ads that the Texas papers ran from September 7 1910
to December 9 1910 only mention Texas League players.

So these ads do support the fact that the Texas League players probably were
printed separately from the other 42 Southern League players.
