The C46 Imperial Tobacco issue of 1912 was a turn-of-the-century Canadian issue featuring players from the International League (which included Toronto and Motreal). The woodgrain borders make the issue extremely condition-sensitive as the borders are extremely prone to chipping. This important C46 card shows Chick Gandil while playing minor league baseball in Montreal. While not in the Hall of Fame, Gandil remains one of the more popular names of the era due to his involvement in throwing the 1919 World Series. This card is in GOOD condition due to corner and edge wear, notably along the right edge.
