Default Unopened tobacco packs with possible cards in them?

Are there examples of unopened pre-war tobacco cig packs w/baseball cards in them? If so, what prices have they gone for? Thanks.

There was a Sweet Cap on the bay in the last two days that had X-rays of a T card still in it. I think it was $1750.

there is more of a chance to get a T58 Fish Card, T42 Bird Card or a T80 Military Card, etc. as there is a T205 or T206...

Sorry if this is a hijack, but I think it fits the theme...

Did cigarette buyers in the day know if they were going to get a baseball card or was it pot luck year-round to receive any of the above T cards?

Many, many years ago I remember Alan Hager had several packs that he was selling for somewhere around $5000 each.
I believe he sold them all at Bob Lee's San Francisco Holiday Show.
Happy Holidays,

I think Mark Murphy and maybe the Prince of cards had some Piedmont's a few years back, with cards inside.

Default possibility

I have an unopened polar bear pouch 1910 and an unopened Obak pack 1912
which I framed immediately so I wouldn't open them. They've been hanging in my office for some time now, containing fabulous cards, I'm sure--- or I hope.

best,
barry

Default Unopened packs

I have 15 or so unopened, but the dates don't match up well with the card issue dates. Also, the factory numbers might not match. Other issues are soft-pack vs. hard-pack and the count of cigarettes in the pack. It's hard to get the 'stars to align' properly so that one would likely contain a baseball card. If so, prices of $1000 and up are likely. Still I enjoy collecting them, and there's always that thought that a similar-looking pack would have contained a card some 100 years ago. Fun to collect as companion pieces to T206 and other T cards, and very hard to find these in unopened condition.
