Default Looking for information about e98 "Old Put" cards

Posted By: leon

Old Puts have been around for a long time in the hobby. Not much is really known about them except they sort of made a caramel card into a tobacco card. I used to say I had never seen another blue background Old Put but not too long ago I did see 1-2 more. The ones with the red backgrounds are far more common, although common is probably not a good word to use since all of them are quite scarce. All of the overprints are in the period purple ink..For some reason mostly HOF'ers are seen too but I don't think there's much reasoning behind that...regards
