H801-7 Old Mill Cabinets Overview
These premium photographs were distributed by Old Mill Cigarettes. The fronts include a black and white drawing of a player along with his name and team at the bottom. They are almost a bit similar to the T207 Brown Background cards in that they have sort of a drab looking appearance. The images are quality ones but the black and white picture combined with a grey/copper-like border gives them a dull look.
Backs advertise Old Mill Cigarettes with the following advertisement:
“Blue bloods every one. Made of Virginia and Carolina tobaccos – pedigreed leaf. Blended exquisitely and wrapped in genuine wheat straw paper- the kind you have always used in rolling your own cigarettes.”
One quirk with the set is that it was labeled a trade card by Jefferson Burdick in his American Card Catalog. It should actually be classified as a T-card to indicate a tobacco issue. Thus, we have provided it in both the H-Card and T-Card areas.
An interesting fact is that several of the pictures on these were the same ones used on the T210 Old Mill red border cards.
