1887 KALAMAZOO BATS N690

Produced by Chas. Gross & Co. of Philadelphia in 1887, the N690s are in carte de Vista (CDV) size and contain the players name, position and team on the lower part of image. The cards also contain an advertisement in the bottom margin stating Smoke Kalamazoo Bats.
It is believed that these scarce cards were packaged inside cigar packs of Kalamazoo Bats. These packs are incredibly difficult to locate. Since 1995, I have only been able to document the existence of one such pack (pictured above).
Approximate value of an empty pack would be $1000.00+.
