Default Southern League cards (continued)

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






There are a variety of "card games" you can play with the T206 Southern Leaguer's combined with other tobacco
cards having the same image. For instance, shown here is my whimsical run of Greminger's cards......


..........


And, why not include a brown OLD MILL (with Factory #649 overprint) card of Greminger.......

OK, I need Greminger's 1910 COUPON card to fill-out this run. If anyone reading this has a T213-1 Greminger for sale, email me.... tedzan11@comcast.net



Another challenge is trying for a "Quadruplicate" subset that includes a 1910 COUPON card of your favorite SL guy from 20 subjects in the Southern Association
of the T213-1 set.






Ted Breitenstein is my favorite Southern Leaguer in the T206 set. Here's my Quadruplicate sub-set of Ted.






OK guys, show us your whimsical (or whatever) sub-set(s) of Southern League cards.

Default T206 Southern Leaguers Brown OLD MILL cards

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





During the Summer of 1909, American Litho (ALC) printed SWEET CAPORAL 150 Factory #30 cards of many Major Leaguers and shipped them to Factory #30 in NYC.
Simultaneously, ALC started printing their first group (34 subjects) of Southern Leaguers. These cards were printed with brown HINDU backs and were shipped to the
Factory (#649) producing HINDU cigarettes (also SWEET CAPORAL cigarettes).
Furthermore, ALC selected 34 - Major League subjects from the batches of the aforementioned SWEET CAPORAL 150 cards and modified the backs by stamping them
with the "Factory #649" overprint in order to ship them to this new factory.

Circa..Fall of 1909, ALC switched to printing up the OLD MILL backs on the Southern League cards. During this entire process, the usual printer's practice of test runs
between actual press runs resulted in these brown inked OLD MILL (scrap) cards [with the red ink Factory #649 overprint (inverted)]. I don't think any of them found
their way into cigarette packs. Anyhow, to date 12 of them have been confirmed. They are........

Hey Ted, I need your help. In reviewing post #30 I noticed that you mentioned the close correlation between the Red Cross type-1 and the Pirate sets. The Red Cross set features a Gabby Street card. I thought that that was a Street Catching pose. But the Pirate set features a Street portrait.

Does that mean that the Red Cross Street card is also the portrait version?

Hi Pat

Thanks much for posting these two Street cards.

It's not often that these T215-1 cards are seen.


Thanks again,

Excellent post! You may want to put the "index" at the start of the thread.

Patrick, is that your Street catching? I only know of one, and it belongs to Richard Masson, so this would be a second example.
