Tomas Gutierrez Cards (39)

Tomas Gutierrez Cards (39)

Tomas Gutierrez, a Cuban tobacco company that specialized in Cuban League baseball cards, expanded northward to offer this early 1920s set of American Major League stars. Wonderful studies in simplicity, these extremely rare 1 1/2 x 2 1/2" black and white head shots encapsulate an era of globalization but still without the pervasive impact of Babe Ruth. These 39 cards (EX) are among a pitchers' series that numbered in the 100s. It is most notably represented by the Yankees hurlers Bob Shawkey and Samuel P. Jones, and Cincinnati's Carl Mays. The back of the cards lead with the simple plea, "Smoke cigars." Think you'll find a more intriguing artifact from the tobacco companies' foray into the trading card business, espcially south of the Border? No cigar.
