Plow Boy Tobacco Overview

10PB Young.jpgThe Plow Boy Tobacco cards are not designated in the American Card Catalog. At nearly 6″ x 8″, these are larger photo/cabinet style cards.

Fronts include black and white images of Chicago baseball players and the backs have a short ad for Plow Boy Tobacco. The backs have either a short advertisement for Plow Boy Tobacco or an advertisement for premium items.

At least one error card and correction in the set exists. Pitcher “Death Valley” Jim Scott is in the set but one version of his photo has his name misspelled as Jim Scot. A corrected Jim Scott version was printed as well. That was interesting as other corrections have not been found the set includes several other cards with spelling errors in the names.

SGC and PSA have graded only a few of each player at the most with SGC grading the majority of them.
