1910 Sweet Caporal Pins P2


This unnumbered set from American Tobacco Company were produced and distributed roughly between 1910 and 1912. There are some players with small lettering and large lettering in the checklist with large letters will have a B next to it, the pins with larger letters are worth more.  Each pin measures approximately 7/8" in diameter. The pins are essentially brown and white and the pictures closely resemble the T205 Gold borders around the same time period. Original advertising "Sweet Caporal" brand identified on a thin-paper backing inside the pin’s reverse is a big plus. I will include price at near mint condition. Luckily they are hard to counterfeit so you don’t need graded pieces although it doesn’t hurt if the price is right.
Sweet Caporal are designed as P2 in the American card catalog
These are a great and fun set to start collecting vintage cub pins are very common and lower grades are cheap. Good Luck and Happy Hunting!!!
