Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC (submitted by REA). This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! Extremely rare tobacco card of Clyde Engle (Buffalo, Federal League) from the 1914 Kotton Tobacco set. The Kotton Tobacco set shares designs with several other closely related caramel and bakery issues (E90-1 American Caramel Company, E92 Dockman & Sons, etc.) from the same era. All Kotton Tobacco cards are extremely rare. Produced by the People's Tobacco Co. of New Orleans, the Kotton Tobacco series was regionally issued only in the Louisiana area. The offered card has a flawless image set against a blue background, with light, even corner wear, and no creases or wrinkles. Outstanding centering. The reverse is clean with a bold, well-centered advertisement for Kotton Cigarettes. This is an extremely strong sample card from this rare set. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $960
