Well-known mischaracterization of Joe Tinker's image as Buck Weaver, graded EX 5 by PSA.  Discovered only recently, the Tango Eggs issue was produced in 1916 by L. Frank & Company of New Orleans. Similar to the 1915 E106 American Caramel issue, a hoard of about 800 of the cards were discovered in 1991. Prior to that, the set was virtually unknown with just a handful of circulated cards having popped up over the years. Of the 20 different subjects discovered, the majority of the cards found were either of outfielder Bob Bescher or of Hughie Jennings.  Relatively scarce, one of just 37 examples of Weavers card to have been graded by PSA.
