Baseball Game Tobacco Label
The second earliest tobacco label related to the National Game. At the top is shown the ballpark in Matanzas where the first organized Cuban baseball game was played. This is essentially a label of the (Cuban) New York Knickerbockers. The ballpark is Palmar de Junco. Wonderful imagery with batter and pitcher going through the motions. "The Champions B.B.C." is the brand of cigarettes and the maker is R. Crespo of Matanzas. Couple of tiny tears o/w EX-MT. Only specimen we know to exist.
