Is it possible that those two brands were successful and large enough thAt they didn't need additional promotion?

Default T206 Reference/Reflections...Any guesses why no CHESTERFIELD or LUCKY STRIKE T-cards?

Hi Rich

LUCKY STRIKE cigarettes were not that popular a brand until the 1920's.

One of the most popular cigarette brands circa 1909 - 1911 was PIEDMONT.
And, especially in the South and Southeast.


And, the CHESTERFIELD brand was introduced in 1912.

Interesting. Usually everything hinges on marketing and the need to drive sales. I'm really surprised, then, that these two brands never hosted cards.

This thread will provide references to major contributions posted on Net54 these past 14 years that have formed a better understanding of "The Monster" [as Bill Heitman
so aptly coined his T206 book (circa 1980)].

Let's start with the 2005-2006 publication of Scot Reader's Inside T206
An excellent, very informative, and well written book that inspired many of us Net54ers to post our experiences and theory's regarding the complexities of the T206 series.

One of the early and very significant T206 threads was posted in June 2006 by Barry Arnold, titled T206 EPDG- - - how rare in your collection ?
This thread sparked lots of brainstorming among Net54ers regarding T206's. It included surveys; and, various aspects of the T206 series were explored.....resulting in 363
meaningful posts. Furthermore, between many of us Net54ers, it was "the start of of a beautiful friendship" (to quote Claude Raines to Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca).

In the Summer of 2006, Bill Brown posted his T206 Super-Set (excel) spreadsheet. Bill received 1000's of inputs from Net54ers for this spreadsheet. It was a great start
in the pursuit of what a T206 "master" set would be comprised of....T206 Super-Set

Sept 2007, I started a thread titled Joe Doyle NAT'L and it's 11 "cousins"....SURVEY to explore certain PIEDMONT 350 cards that I considered as rare as the Joe Doyle
"error" card. I eventually referred to these particular T206's as the Elite 11


Subsequent posts in this thread will expand on theory's regarding the structure of the T206 series and the front/back permutations that have resulted. A fair number of the
theory's presented on Net54 (since 2006) have withstood the test of time. Providing accurate lists of which front/back combos were printed. And, which ones are No-Prints.

So, stay tuned......many more T206 "oldies but goodies" References and Reflections will be posted here.

And, feel free to contribute any meaningful T206 stories, or experiences collecting T206's that you have.

In this thread, I've tried to present some very complex aspects of the Series structure of the T206 set in a style which is understandable to most of the T206 collectors.
However, if not clear, don't be shy about asking questions. Post your questions on this thread. Or, email me directly with your question(s).... tedzan11@comcast.net
In either event, I will gladly do my best to provide you clear and meaningful answer(s).

When American Lithographic started printing the 350 Series T206's, they introduced these T-brands....AMERICAN BEAUTY, BROAD LEAF, CAROLINA BRIGHTS, CYCLE, DRUM,
EPDG, OLD MILL, POLAR BEAR, and TOLSTOI .

TOLSTOI print runs started circa 1910. Continued to the end of the T206 press runs (Spring 1911). To date, 255 subjects have been confirmed. TOLSTOI cards are not tough.
However, certain 350-only subjects printed early in 1910 must have been short-printed, as they are very tough to find.

Default T206 REFERENCE....Reflections......the TOLSTOI story....and show us your cards

ATC Factory #30 (in NYC) was a major producer of various cigarette brands. Besides SWEET CAPORAL, some of these tobacco brands were
CAIRO MONOPOL, LENOX, and TOLSTOI. Also early 1911, a new T-brand named UZIT.
By the Spring of 1911, American Lithographic (ALC) had printed the last of their T206's (350/460 and 460-only series cards). ALC embarked
on producing their Gold-Bordered cards.....T205 BB, and various and sundry Non-Sports sets (T42, T43, T56, T57, T69, T80, T99, etc.).

Furthermore,
Imagine opening a LENOX or UZIT (or perhaps a TOLSTOI) cigarette pack in the Spring of 1911 and finding a T206 card and a T80 card in it. **






In my wild imagination, I expect that some day we will find a Cobb (or two) with a T80 back on it. Hey, this may seem improbable; however, consider that the printer
installed the T80 LENOX printing plates in the press instead of the T206 LENOX plates. After all, these cards were printed concurrently. Anyway Cobb has been quoted
as saying...…. " Baseball is like War ! "
So guys, check-out these unique Cobb cards .........……..


……………………………………...….…... .


. ………….and, here he is wielding his weapon of "war"



** Note….ALC ledger sheet (dated Feb 1911) exists which instructs ATC employees at Factory #30 to insert both a T206 card and a T80 card in a LENOX (or UZIT) cigarette pack.

Ted, as far as I know these Tolstoi's on your list are unconfirmed

Bliss
Casey
Knight (portrait
Knight (bat)
Merritt
O'neil
Pfeister (seated)

the following missing from your list are confirmed

Beckley
Donovan (throwing)
Knabe
Street (portrait)
Sweeney, Bill

I also think Bender (with trees) might be an error on the confirmed lists
but I'm not sure. There is only one in the PSA pop reports and none
in the SGC reports. I've never seen one and I think it might be a label or data entry
error on a no trees PSA example.

Beckley

Sweeney, Bill

I also think Bender (with trees) might be an error on the confirmed lists
but I'm not sure. There is only one in the PSA pop reports and none
in the SGC reports. I've never seen one and I think it might be a label or data entry
error on a no trees PSA example.

Hi Pat

1st....the ones you pointed out which I omitted.....
If you check-out my recent thread (shown below), you will see that I did list 3 of the subjects as confirmed TOLSTOI cards.
I was combining data from several TOLSTOI lists in my records, and I inadvertently left out part of one. My bad !

I will double-check the data on my lists of TOLSTOI cards to see why I included any, or all 7 of these as "confirmed" TOLSTOI cards.


3rd....Regarding the Bender (trees) with TOLSTOI, I vaguely recall having seen one many years ago. I checked the pop reports (and
like you said) I noticed PSA lists one graded. So I figured my recollection was valid.

Thanks for your inputs.

Ted, I saw that most of these were on your other lists so I knew you just
forgot to put them on this list I was just pointing them out so you could
update this list.

I'm still a little skeptical about the Bender. There are a few single known
example Tolstoi's but Bender is the only HOF and we have seen other
errant confirmations due to a pop error. if you look at the other
350 only HOF pop numbers it seems odd that there isn't a recorded
sale or scan.

Combined pop #'s of the other HOF 350 only Tolstoi's

Beckley - 17
Bresnahan - 12
Collins, Eddie - 6
Collins, Jimmy - 12
Huggins (hands at mouth) - 12
Huggins (portrait) - 6
Kelley - 3
Marquard (Port) - 4 *SGC has 9 in their pop report that doesn't specify pitching or portrait.
McGinnity - 6
Speaker - 11

* * * * * * * * * * * * * T206 Reference, Theory's, Surveys, etc. * * * * * * * * * * * *





My research indicates that initial TOLSTOI print runs (circa early 1910) appear to coincide with early 1910 press runs of the 350 series. And, what is evident (based on pop
report data) is that they many of these cards were short-printed relative to subsequent T206 series (350/460 series and 460-only series) TOLSTOI print runs.

For example......this simulated arrangement of the 48 subjects in the 1910 COUPON set were also printed with TOLSTOI backs. Approx. 67 % of these guys are quite tough
to find with TOLSTOI backs. Becker & Marshall have yet to be confirmed with a TOLSTOI back. But then, it is only recently that Joe Dunn, Claude Rossman, and Ira Thomas
have been found with TOLSTOI backs. So, I expect that Becker and Marshall will be eventually found with TOLSTOI backs.

Becker *

Byrne
Campbell
Chance (yellow portrait) **
Charles
Chase (blue portrait) **

* denotes not yet confirmed with TOLSTOI back.

** denotes super-print which has a considerably higher TOLSTOI population, since these subjects were also included in the 350/460 series print runs.

I confirmed these along with Fiene throwing on t206resource in the past 1+ years when I found scans of them while doing research on the scarcity of the 350 only subjects with Tolstoi backs all of them sold at different times.

The Dunn came up for sale on ebay in March 2018 Fiene sold on ebay in July 2015 Rossman in June 2015 and the Thomas sold on ebay in May 2011.

I figured it may be you that found these 4 subjects with TOLSTOI backs this past year. But, I wasn't certain. Great research, guy.

Figured we needed a Tolstoi Matty posted. Always wondered why they made Tolstoi and Piedmont so similar in design.

Good question, Dean.

The TOLSTOI brand was an early entry when the print runs of the 350 series subjects began.
My guess is the same artist that designed the PIEDMONT backs also did the TOLSTOI back.

.... Sweet Caporal .... Sovereign .......... Piedmont____The "House" that created these Tobacco cards__American Beauty ... Sovereign .......... UZIT


I'm celebrating my 40th year since I read Bill Heitman's T206 book titled "THE MONSTER".....that started me on this glorious adventure which has become an obsession.

But, "obsessions" can be a good thing. Especially, when I think of all the great friends I have met all these years in this great hobby Talkin' T206's (and, N162's, T205's,
E90's, 1910 COUPON's, GOUDEY's, DIAMOND STARS, PLAY BALL's, LEAF's, BOWMAN's, TOPPS).

I would like to express my sincerest appreciation to all of you on this forum. And to all of the collectors and dealers (many of whom have become life-long friends) which
I have met since my first Willow Grove Show in March 1981.

This forthcoming weekend marks my 100+ Philly Show in which I will be set-up at. Looking forward to seeing some of you (booth # 412).

A good number of Net54er's dropped over to visit with Dan and me this past weekend at the Philly Show. We had a great time talking BB and BB cards with them.
Made some nice deals (selling & trading). Many of them traveled a good distance (Boston, New York State, North Carolina, Virginia, etc.) despite the snow & rain.

Default T206 REFERENCE / Reflections, etc.....CYCLE 460 checklist.....and show us your cards.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * T206 Reference, Theory's, Surveys, etc. * * * * * * * * * * * * *






The CYCLE 460 cards depict players in the 350/460 series and the 460-only series, which comprise a total of 109 subjects. These cards were issued circa Fall/Winter 1910.
The CYCLE 460 cards were not equally printed. There are some considerably more difficult to find than others. I'll post a breakdown of the tougher ones vs the easier ones in
a forthcoming post. I have to do some searching for all my data on the relative scarcity of these T206's with CYCLE 460 backs.

If I recall correctly, Lee Behrens has completed this 109 card sub-set. I'm curious if anyone else on this forum has completed (or near to completing) the CYCLE 460 sub-set ?

In any event, let's have a show-n-tell of your CYCLE 460 cards. CYCLE 460 cards do not get the recognition that most tougher T206 backs do; nonetheless, they can be scarce.

As noted in my last post, certain T206's with CYCLE 460 backs are much tougher to find than others. In my opinion, CYCLE 460 cards should be ranked scarcer than they are.

For example....Russ Ford is a subject in the Exclusive 12 ** group. This group of T206's are easier to find with red HINDU backs than with the CYCLE 460 backs. I have been
doing a run on each of these 12 guys. Trust me, their CYCLE 460 cards are very tough. The UZIT cards of the Exclusive 12 subjects are almost impossible to find. The CYCLE
460 cards are not that scarce; however, they are a very real challenge.
My McGraw CYCLE 460 (see post #624) is a fairly nice-looking card. This Russ Ford is a rough one, but I am happy to get these CYCLE's any way I can find them.

Ted,

Love this post about one of my favorite backs. I agree that it's undervalued and underappreciated. Here are my 3 favorite Cycle 460s!

The Cycle 460 is very underrated difficult; like this Lajoie, which is downright impossible.

I too agree that they should be higher on the difficult scale. I haven't been following the Group of 12 cards in a few years but at one point, it was a focus of my T206 collecting for a few months. I managed to find Crandall, Duffy, and Sheckard out of the 12. I admit, I haven't focused my collecting on Cycle 460's at all but have 25 different in my collection. Here is my lowest combined (PSA + SGC) population card of 2 total.

Ted,

I am currently at 99 with 10 left to finish off the subset. Slow progress at this point but seem to knock one off here and there. The set definitely has some toughies.

I know how that goes, I started my AMERICAN BEAUTY 460 run about the same time you started your CYCLE 460 run. And, I still need a couple of guys to complete this 74-card run.
Good luck in finding those last 10 cards.

Also, I am trying to do a CYCLE 460 run with the six Super-Prints. I have (or had) a Matty with a CYCLE 460 back, but I cannot find this card.
I've seen a couple of Cobb's with the CYCLE 460 back. But so far their cost way "out-of-sight". I'm a patient dude, I'll wait for the right Cobb.
Furthermore, the two Hal Chase cards are impossible to find. If anyone here has a blue Chase with a CYCLE 460 back to offer....I am a buyer.

I've been searching for the Chase cards also. They don't ever seem to show up. Maybe I'm always looking in the wrong place. I only have the Johnny Evers, which seems to be the most common for showing up. I remember very early on, I thought there was an American Beauty 460 Chase Blue Portrait along with the other 5 Super Prints but then the checklists proved I was wrong.

Hi Ron
Back in 2006, when I started my AMERICAN BEAUTY 460 (AB 460) run, my research indicated that the 6 super-prints were definitely not printed with the AB 460 (nor the UZIT) backs.
This may seem strange, but I certainly welcomed that fact.

No need to go on a "wild goose" Chase (excuse the pun)

Default T206 Reference, Reflections......The "MONSTER" Master Set achievement....check-it-out

* * * * * * * * * * * * T206 Reference, Theory's, Surveys, etc. * * * * * * * * * * * *





Theoretical thinking in years gone by, it was thought that there could be any where from 6000 to 10,000+ cards that would comprise a T206 "Master Set". However, in
the past 12 years we have gained a significant understanding of which T206 cards were printed and which were not. Resulting in approx. 5300 front/back permutations
that we know were normally issued **.

Thanks to David Hall....who essentially has completed a T206 Master set, we now have a fairly accurate number of how many different T206's were issued in cigarette
packs during the Spring/Summer of 1909 to the Spring of 1911. Reviewing his list of T206's, his current total number of cards is 5238. There are about a dozen T206's
which have been confirmed which David still needs to complete this set.

Your inputs on this subject will be greatly appreciated.


** Note…..
There are approx. 100+ more T206's that were printed, but not issued in cigarette packs (i.e., brown LENOX, brown OLD MILL, and SWEET CAPORAL 460, Factory #30
cards of the 350/460 series subjects). These anomalies will be covered in the next post(s) here....so stay tuned.

To get overly technical, Brown Old Mills were not distributed in packs, but Brown Lenox seem to have been.

Hi Sean

The brown LENOX cards may have been issued in LENOX cigarette packs, but I am not certain that this is true. And, I say this since a limited number of 350/460 series cards
have (so far) surfaced with the brown LENOX backs. Namely, the subjects I refer to as Group B. The brown LENOX cards which have been confirmed are from Group B (none
from Group A) of the 350/460 series subjects. Check-out this link..... The mysterious T206 brown LENOX cards
Furthermore, 6 brown LENOX cards have been confirmed from the 460-only series.

All of which suggests these brown LENOX cards may have been cut from an uncut sheet. I think more research is required to determine if these cards were in cigarette packs.

David provided me a list of his entire Master set about a year ago. He probably has added some cards to his set since then.

Since you seem to be interested in brown LENOX cards, here is a list of the ones in his set (these cards are not included in
the total tally of his Master set in the above Post #636)......

350/460 series

Bender (no Trees)
Bradley (bat)
Burch (fielding)
Cobb (bat off shoulder)
Conroy (bat)
Crawford (bat)
Jordan (bat)
Lajoie (bat)
Lake (no ball)
Leach (cap)
Leifield (bat)
Manning (pitching)
McQuillan (bat)
Overall (yellow sky)
Pfeister (throwing)
F. Smith (Chicago & Boston)
Tinker (bat off shoulder)
Wagner (bat on right)
Willetts
Willis (bat)


460-only series

Chase (trophy)
Latham
Marquard (follow thru)
Merkle (throwing
Schlei (portrait)
Wiltse (portrait-cap)

A brown LENOX is on his list. If I recall correctly, your brown LENOX is PSA graded, correct ?

Well, I checked out the PSA pop report data, and NO data is listed for any LENOX Merkle cards.
Much less a brown LENOX (or two). Very, very strange ! ?

SGC pop report indicates seven LENOX Merkle's (however, it does not differentiate whether they are black or brown).

Ted, my Brown Lenox was graded in 2009, before PSA distinguished between black and brown. They also graded my Black one last year, so I don’t understand why they aren’t listed.

Sean, because your brown Lenox is not on PSA’s pop report, it’s definitely not a brown Lenox, and you don’t need two black Lenox, and I think you should give it to me

Side note - what is the plural of Lenox?

I don't understand it, either. Especially since SGC indicates that seven LENOX were graded by SGC.

Doc, it's actually Lenoxii - where did you get your medical degree?!? By coincidence, it's also the generic drug that cures erectile dysfunction.

Actually, PSA has 9 Black Lenoxii Merkle cards in their pop reports.

Thanx for correcting me. I have that exact PSA pop data link; however, it shows "0's". You figure it, I cannot ?

One of the PSA 1s is my Brown, it just shows up as a Lenox in the pop reports. And one of the SGC Lenox is the card that I crossed to PSA.

I understand that the earlier brown LENOX cards were not identified by PSA as brown.

I am visiting my Daughter and Grandson in Maine this week. And, when I return home I will try to contact David Hall and ask him if the brown LENOX card on his list is one which he has in his collection.
