Default 1900 T203 Baseball Comics

As a type collector I always like the backs of our cards too, especially with respect to advertising. As such I look for T203 Winners Cut Plug Baseball Comic cards. They are quite scarce relative to the Mayo's cards.
When a small group showed up recently I was glad to be able to acquire them. Anyone else have any T203s?

Hi Leon,

Nice T203s !

I only have one or two examples in my collection and they all have the more common Mayo back.

Just one in my collection, and with the regular ol' Mayo back. I like this one because it pictures baseball equipment (bat) and possibly baseball uniform/cap, unlike all the others in the set that have baseball sayings but picture non-baseball artwork.

Kewl set.
As evidenced in this thread the Winners Cut Plug are really scarce. In my estimation they are almost like Zeenuts with tabs compared to ones without tabs. My swag guess, from looking for them for years, is that around 1-2% are Winners Cut Plug with the rest being Mayos.
