Hey Sean

Your red HINDU Chance would fit perfectly in my Chance run. Currently, I have approx. 14 different backs with this Chance (yellow portrait).
Perhaps we can work out a trade.

Anyhow, continuing from my last post, here's a show of the red HINDU cards of my Exclusive 12 guys.

May sound odd, but that's a really solid PSA 1!!!

Default Red HINDU cards

Some years ago, I observed that the rare red HINDU cards were more available with the Exclusive 12 subjects. To prove this point,
I began to acquire Exclusive 12 red HINDU cards starting October 2013. Within 2 months, I had 11 of them with red HINDU backs.
I still needed Sheckard (glove) to complete this run of 12.
Well, this elusive card took me 17 months to finally complete (April 2015) this sub-set.

OK ... I'll bite I think I've asked this before in another thread ... but no one seemed to know at the time.

Is there any reference to how the T206 cards were were packaged and shipped to the different factories from the ALC? For instance ... were the sheets put in cardboard boxes, loaded on a train and then sent to each of the different factories in NY, Virginia, Ohio, etc? I'm trying to imagine a train load of T-206's passing through the Virginia country-side on their way to a Piedmont factory

Actually ... after re-reading my post from last night ... I got to realizing that the T206 cards were cut by the ALC ... correct? That is ... the ALC printed the fronts ... the ALC printed the various factory backs ... and then the ALC cut the sheets ... yes? Then the T206's were probably sent to all the different factories via rail. And then who knows how they got to the factories after reaching the rail station (car, horse/carriage, trolley ...?). Just curious. But not sure anyone else is Thanks!

Hi Jerry
You got it right....these gems we love so much were designed, printed, cut into 1 7/16 by 2 5/8 inch rectangles in this building in downtown New York City.



......and then sent by rail to the various Tobacco Factory's. Most (if not all) of these factory's had railroad lines adjacent to them.

Thanks for the clarification Ted. Not sure why I'm so interested in the logistics ... but I have been reading an online newspaper from 1908 (NY Tribune) and it has peaked my interest in what everyday life was like during the Deadball Era. This all started when I began collecting "T" cards ... and then re-playing the 1908 NY Giants season via Strat-O-Matic baseball. There sure were a lot of suicides and traffic fatalities in 1908. Apparently it was a pretty brutal time period to live in. At least in NY City.

Anyway ... whenever I hold a raw T206 in my hand I often wonder where all that card has traveled during its life. Kind of strange I know. But the history of these little pieces of cardboard ... and the players they depict I find fascinating Thanks for the reply. And Merry Christmas to all!
