American Tobacco Company / Piedmont / Sweet Caporal - T205 Base Ball Series (Bud Sharpe)


1911
T205 Base Ball Series
American Tobacco Company / Piedmont Cigarettes
American Tobacco Company / Sweet Caporal Cigarettes
American Tobacco Company / Polar Bear
USA
220 cards (1 football-related)

I've been looking at Bud Sharpe again and he appears in a set known as T205. It seems to me that the cards for the different baseball league look so different as to be separate sets, but that's just me. The cards were issued through 11 different brands that used 17 different backs.

American Beauty  - Black ink, Green ink
Broad Leaf - Black ink, Green ink
Cycle
Drum
Hassan - Factory 30, Factory 649
