    1909-11 Frank Chance Signed T206 Tobacco Card. Are you looking for a real collecting challenge? Try your hand at autographed tobacco cards. Here we present one of the only examples we've ever encountered, and what a great name to find! The last stop in the game's most famous double-play combination, and the first manager of the team officially known as the New York Yankees (after dropping their "Highlanders" nickname upon the move to the Polo Grounds) has provided a stunning 10/10 black fountain pen autograph upon the face of this card removed from a pack of Sweet Caporal cigarettes. It must be noted that the card is laminated, but this action is certainly largely to thank for the Hall of Fame autograph's unimprovable condition. Encapsulated in a Beckett/JSA slab for protection and unquestioned authenticity.
