Visit this post everyday and be the first to know what just walked in the door at Kenmore Collectibles.

From a 50 card tobacco card set. The cards in this set are unique and quite innovative.  The front of the card has a full lithograph image of a ballplayer.  The back of the card shows the stats for two players and an upside down lithograph image of a ballplayer missing their legs.  In the middle of the card is a fold.  Once folded, the player on the back of the card shares the legs of the fellow on the front of the card thus creating a complete image.

Fifteen of the fifty card set show one or more hall-of-famers (total 18 hall-of-famers).  These cards go in auction for more money than the non hall-of-famers.  Eddie Cicotte is not a Hall-of-Famer but goes for Hall-of-Fame prices.  Cicotte was notorious for being one of the eight players implicated in the 1919 Black Sox scandal. He was banned for life from Major League Baseball.
