Just Collect Offers The Terrapin Tobacco Treasury

justcollect6-21-13Tobacco was first grown in the colony of Maryland in the late 1600’s, and by 1740, was the leading revenue-earner for the Land of Crabcakes located at the northern end of the USA’s Piedmont region. Who knew that the cash crop, with the addition of images of baseball players in packs, would become a “cash crop” for a Maryland collector’s family recently?

Just Collect was provided with a plethora of gorgeous 1909-11 T206 white border cards, with a smattering of gold-edged T205s in the collection. Featuring high quality cards from these two sets, a tremendous Terrapin Tobacco treasury was acquired just weeks ago, and will be available for auction in the next few weeks.
