Produced between the years 1910 and 1919 by the American Tobacco Company, the T213’s are divided into three subsets; Type Is, Type IIs and Type IIIs. The cards were packaged and sold locally in the Louisiana region. The complete set of Type Is totals 68 cards and encompasses players from the Major, Federal, and Southern leagues. These first series cards are easily identifiable by their backs which read “Coupon (Mild) Cigarettes”. There are 184 cards in the set of Type IIs consisting of players from the American, National, Federal, and Southern leagues. Type II cards are easily identified by their backs where “20 for 5˘” is printed. Type III cards, on the other hand, have “16 for 10˘” printed on their backs. There are 69 cards in the Type III set consisting of players from the American, National, Federal, and Southern leagues.
Type Is, IIs, and IIIs were all packaged inside Coupon (Mild) Cigarettes soft packs. These soft packs are incredibly scarce and since 1995, I have only been able to document the existence of 1 such pack although I have been told there are a few others out there.
Approximate value of a Coupon Cigarettes soft pack (regardless of series) would be $425.00+.
The Coupon Cigarettes pack pictured above is from the private collection of Jim Shaw.
