T206 - White Borders

The nearly 525 cards which make up the T206 set are the most popular of the early tobacco card issues. Players are depicted in a color lithograph against a variety of colorful backgrounds, surrounded by a white border. The player names on the 1-7/16~ x 2-5/8" cards appear at the bottom with the city and league, when a city had more than one team. Backs contain an ad for one of 16 brands of cigarettes. There are 389 major leaguer cards and 134 minor leaguer cards in the set, but with frount and back varieties the number of potentially different cards runs into the thousands. The set features many expensive cards including a number of pose and/or team variations along with the very scarce Eddie Plank card and the "King of Baseball Cards", the T206 Honus Wagner, the most avidly sought of all baseball cards.
