    1913 Derby Cigars Rube Marquard SGC Authentic Plus "Little Cigars" Pack and Cigar Box. The Derby Cigar series is among the rarest 20th century releases with only one or two examples of each player known. Their exact form of distribution, origin, and age remained a mystery. Even the most advanced collections failed to include a single example. They are paper thin, colorful and nicely produced with rich metallic gold decoration complementing a deep red backdrop and Black and White portraits. Up until 2012, the known subjects were all from the 1909 New York Giants. All 12 also played together in 1911, 1912 and 1913. It was then that a discovery of twelve Derby Cigars cards was made featuring the Philadelphia Athletics and a very strong case for a 1913 issue date was made. Offered is a single hand cut card of HoF pitcher Rube Marquard. Encapsulated SGC Authentic. Also included is a rare Derby "Little Cigars" sliding tray and shell style pack (VG/EX) and a 100-count wood cigar box with an 1878-1909 tax stamp with on overprint stamp. Box is excellent but portions of the tax stamp are missing. A great trio from a truly rare brand.
