Zeprock Collection

RE: Zeprock Collection
Well we all know that baseball cards first appeared in the late 1800's in tobacco products. I only have one true tobacco card and I pictured it in my first post on this thread. I know that adding those cards to my collection is probably not going to happen due to scarcity and price however, in my opinion, the next best thing is a reprint and I have lots of those. Here are nine tobacco cards from my collection.

1953 Red Man #AL14 Early Wynn (These cards were originally sealed in plastic and affixed to the outside pouches of Red Man tobacco products. This is the only other tobacco card I currently own that is not a reprint.)
1977 Dover Publications-1912 Hassan-Triple Folders Reprints #NNO Hughie Jennings/Ty Cobb (This ingenious design contained two T205-like cards on each end that could fold over a black and white center panel. These cards were originally inserted into packages of Hassan Cork Tip Cigarettes. I cut this reprint from the pages of a 1977 Dover magazine.)
1982 Galasso-Turkey Red-T3-1911 Reprints #36 Tris Speaker (These cards were actually cabinet-size cards too large to fit in packages of cigarette packages but instead could be acquired by redeeming coupons from packages of Turkey Red, Old Mill or Fez Cigarettes. They were beautiful works of art and have since been reprinted numerous times by Topps since 2005 right up through 2020. This particular card was reprinted in 1982 by Renata Galasso.)

1983 Capitol-1909 T206-Polar Bear Reprints #173 Walter Johnson (The T206 set was the most popular of all tobacco issues appearing over a three year period within sixteen different brands of cigarettes. This reprint was issued in 1983 by the Capitol Card Company.)
1986 Fritsch-N172 Old Judge Reprints #2 King Kelly (These cards were originally issued in the late 1800's in packages of Old Judge and Gypsy Queen cigarettes. Upper Deck has been reprinting Goodwin Champions and Old Judge cards for several years but this particular reprint came from a set issued by Larry Fritsch who made a business out of reprinting many rare card sets.)
1986 Mayo's Cut Plug-1895 N300 Reprints #NNO John Montgomery Ward (This set was originally issued by the Mayo Tobacco Works of Richmond, Virginia. I believe this reprint to have been issued by a company called Poor Man's Cards in 1986.)

1988 Card Collectors Company-1911 Mecca Double Folders-T201 Reprints #35 Al Bridwell/Christy Mathewson (These cards were one of the first to list statistics on them. Each card depicted two different players, one when the card is folded and another when the card is unfolded. This card was produced by the Card Collectors Company in 1988 and when folded over depicts Al Bridwell who shares Mathewson's feet.)
1992 Sports Cards-Old Time Tobacco Cards #51 Babe Ruth (I cut this card from the pages of a 1992 issue of Sports Cards Magazine and it's one of a five card set of Ruth cards listed as Old Time Tobacco Cards.)
1995 IMT-Wagner-T-206 Reprint #1 Honus Wagner (As you all undoubtedly know, this is one of the most sought after cards in the hobby. The original version of this card was pulled from circulation almost immediately after being issued due to Wagner's objection to being featured in a tobacco product. This one card Piedmont reprint was issued as a promotion by IMT in Atlanta, Georgia. It was licensed by Curtis Marketing Group and the Honus Wagner Estate and celebrated a contest in which one lucky person could actually win a real T206 Wagner.)
I collect Hall of Fame baseball player cards and cards of current and retired superstars.
