T203 Mayo’s Base Ball Comics Overview

T203 Mayo BackT203 12 A Two Bagger.jpgThe T203 Mayo’s Base Ball set can be considered a non-sports card of sorts by some collectors at first glance. Fronts include baseball-related slogans with pictures of non-sports activities.

The set, however, was meant as a humorous baseball issue as determined on the backs. The reverse of the cards call this series “Base Ball Comics” and relayed the fact that there were 25 different designs (cards) in the collection.

Cards were issued by Mayo’s Cut Plug tobacco and an advertisement for the company was on the backs as well. The ad stated the tobacco product was five cents and ‘good from start to finish.’
