Thread: My tobacco card collection

Nice pickup! I bet the grade is "1" because of back damage. But that's okay as long as the front has appeal. That is how I collect these oldies. :)Current Collection Activity: (cards I refuse to collect - GU, sticker AU, airbrushed)
Giovani Bernard: base in NC uniform or Bengals orange, hard-signed cards and game-used/autographed full equipment
Cards of current Bengals in orange jerseys
Pre-WWII baseball tobacco cards (T-types, E-types) only

No creases and some edgewear. With that grade it's gotta be paper damage on the back. That's what I LOVE about these cards - low grade = low cost, but the front is still has the spectacularness (sp?) of a higher graded card!

The thing I find really nice about these cards is that the low grade cards are just as attractive as the high ones (except in some cases) and like, you said, they cost much less. The two I just bought are actually a lot nicer than their grade shows, I think. I feel like they should at least be graded a 2 each, but I really don't see myself sending them in for regrading anytime soon.

Got some of them graded through the bulk submission here at SCF. Didn't turn out too bad
