1909/10 TY COBB TOBACCO T206 TIN CARD
I NEED HELP OR INFORMATION ON THIS ITEM. I'VE EMAILED SEVERAL PLACES WITH PIX TRYING TO GET INFORMATION ON THIS ITEM BUT HAD NO RESPONSE.
I THINK THIS IS A PICTURE OF A TY COBB GREEN BACK PORTRAIT T206 TOBACCO CARD - BUT IT IS MADE OF TIN. IT LOOKS LIKE IT HAS BEEN ASSEMBLED BY SOMEONE IN THE PRINCE ALBERT TOBACCO TIN OVAL WHERE THE PRINCE ORIGINALLY BELONGED. IT HAS THE WHITE LACE BORDER ON TOP & WAS IN A VERY OLD TURN OF THE CENTURY METAL PICTURE FRAME. I TOOK IT OUT OF THE FRAME TO DETERMINE WHAT IT WAS BUT DIDN'T WANT TO DISASSEMBLE IT ANY MORE IN FEAR OF DAMAGING IT. IT WAS PUT TOGETHER VERY WELL. THE TY COBB PORTRAIT IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION WITH NO BENDS, ALTHOUGH IT DOES SHOW SOME WEAR. IT MEASURES APPROX. 3 1/2" x 4 3/4".
I HAVE NO WAY TO TELL HOW OLD THIS IS OR WHEN IT WAS DONE & PUT TOGETHER. BUT IT WAS PUT TOGETHER WITH A LOT OF TIME & CARE.
I WOULD LIKE ANY INFO IF THIS PARTICLAR PICTURE WAS ON ANY OF HIS TOBACCO TINS PRODUCED BY F. R. PENN TOBACCO CO.
