Over a period of six years Peoples Tobacco Co. produced baseball cards for their Kotton, Mino, and Virginia Extra Cigarettes brands. Like other southern issues, they remain one of the more elusive series with circulation limited to the South. The cards feature players from the American, National and Federal Leagues. "Kotton" is by far the most common - "common" is used reluctantly - with almost 500 SGC submissions, with "Mino" and "Virginia Extra" being by far the rarest cards represented the SGC census. This auction offers examples of all three brands plus rare blank back examples. Offered is HoFer Hugh Jennings with his Orange background. Graded SGC 20 Fair 1.5, this is one of only two examples recorded on the SGC population report.
