Just So Tobacco Overview

The 1893 Just So Tobacco card set is one of the rarer issues of the 1800s.

Picturing only players from the Cleveland Spiders, the issue has grown in popularity and remains incredibly difficult to find. For rookie card enthusiasts, the set has gained some notoriety as being the first known product with a Cy Young card.

The card design is understated. In addition to the player’s image and name, the only other printing of any kind is a brief advertisement reading, “Chew or smoke Just So,” referring to the Just So brand tobacco products.

Backs of these rare cards are entirely blank.

Just So Tobacco Checklist

A complete checklist is yet to be fully confirmed. A Buck Ewing card was recently discovered only a few years ago in the walls of a house so potential other subjects not yet found could still exist. At the time of its discovery, the Ewing card fetched nearly $20,000.
