1880 "Old Time G" Baseball Cigar Box

This cigar box and inner label for the 'Old Time G' brand features baseball players and a hat-adorned cherubic female portrait. Getty Images attributes a similar oval "Old Time G'" cigar label to "Harris Publishers January 01, 1880 Philadelphia, PA." Tax stamp annotated is later, dated 1901. We wonder if the "G" in "Old Time G" Stands for "Gangster." There is some water damage and wear, measures 8.5x5x2.5". From the finest collection of baseball and sports cigar boxes ever to be offered for public auction.
