Extremely rare pair of tobacco cards from the 1910 T209 Contentnea Cigarettes "Photo Series," each graded and encapsulated by SGC (all submitted by REA). These cards are part of an exciting, fresh-to-the-hobby collection consigned to this auction by the family of a Midwestern collector who built his impressive collection over a period of many decades, beginning as a young boy in the 1930s. This is a very attractive pair of these extremely striking 1910-era tobacco cards featuring players from the Virginia League, Carolina Association, and Eastern League. The lot consists of the following: Flowers (GD+ 2.5) and Newton (PR 1). Each card displays a crisp image and boldly printed reverse. T209 Contentnea Photo Series cards are rarely offered, and are highly prized by both minor-league collectors and tobacco-card collectors. Total: 2 cards. Reserve $100. Estimate (open).
