    1911-16 T216 Peoples - Kotton Tobacco Chief Bender, White Cap -Baltimore Fed & Blank Back SGC Pair (2). Over a period of six years the Peoples Tobacco Co. produced baseball cards now designated T216 by the ACC. Backs advertise three different brands: Kotton, Mino, and Virginia Extra Cigarettes. There are close to 75 different documented players plus numerous copy variations. Like other southern issues, they remain one of the more elusive series with circulation limited to the South and one of the few issues to feature players from the American, National and Federal Leagues. This auction offers examples of all three brands plus rare blank back examples. Offered is a pair of cards featuring HoFer Chief Bender, both with the "Baltimore Feds" caption. Includes: Chief Bender/White Cap with a Kotton Cigarettes, "Mild and Sweet, Why You Should You Use It" ad back and Chief Bender/White Cap with a Blank Back. Both encapsulated SGC Authentic.
