Measuring 5 3/4" x 8", this oversized, extremely scarce set features many star players and a checklist covering both of the big league teams from Chicago. Black Sox-er Chick Gandil (not Gandel of course) swings the heavy lumber here on a PSA 2, one of but two examples of this card in their pop report. A snowfall of original product can be seen on the obverse along with some corner creases and additional soiling and small bit of paper loss under his hands. The picture is ideally composed, a real testament to the skill of the photographer. The reverse, with some lesser staining than seen on the front, features the more frequently seen text variant, however, any Plow Boy Tobacco card counts itself among the most rare of all the tobacco issues of the era.
