1915 Victory Tobacco (T214) Cubs

Issued by Ligett and Myers Tobacco Co, these are often mistaken for T206 cards because of the white borders and identical poses to that set. Distributed in Louisiana, this set can also be found with actors. The back of the card reads "Victory Tobacco 5 cents A Good Smoke and a Good Chew Base ball Series 90 Designs Ligget & Myers Tobacco Co." Although 90 "designs" are promised on the card backs, about 60 are known today. Cards measure 1-1/2" X 2-3/4".
