1910 to 1913 T215 Red Cross Tobacco Neal Ball SGC-Graded Pair - Type 1 & 2
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $2,280
Extremely rare pair of cards from the T215 Red Cross Tobacco set (Types 1 and 2) featuring Neal Ball. T215 Red Cross is one of tobacco-card collecting's most overlooked issues. Very similar in design and borrowing images from the T206 set, T215 Red Cross cards are believed to have been issued exclusively in the Louisiana area. The cards measure 1-1/2 x 2-5/8 inches, which is the standard size for tobacco issues. Type 1 cards, issued between 1910 and 1912, have brown captions, similar to the T206 set, while Type 2 cards, issued between 1912 and 1913, have blue captions. Both types share the same distinctive red advertising reverse. 1) 1910-1912 T215 (Type 1) Neal Ball: SGC GOOD 30, Cleveland Naps. 2) 1912-1913 T215 (Type 2) Neal Ball: SGC FAIR 20, Boston Red Sox (pictured with Cleveland). Each card is bright and crisp, with even wear to the corners and surface creasing responsible for the assigned grade, which is typical of T215s as they tend to survive in very modest condition. This is an extremely attractive and virtually impossible to assemble related pair of Type 1 and 2 sample cards from one of tobacco-card collecting's rarest sets. Total: 2 cards. SOLD FOR $2,280
