1909-11 T206 Polar Bear Back Baseball Cards
The T206 set is often considered to be the most famous Pre-War set in existence. The cards measure 1 7⁄16" x 2 5⁄8" inches which is considered by many collectors to be the standard tobacco card size.
T206 Baseball Cards can be found with various backs, based on the company whose product they were sold with. Cards with the Polar Bear Back are relatively easy to find and are almost as common as their Piedmont and Sweet Caporal T206 counterparts. For this reason, cards with Polar Bear Backs might command a slight premium but are readily collected by your average T206 "white borders" collector.
Some of the key Hall-of-Famers known to be included with a Polar Bear Back are: Mordecai Brown, Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, Nap Lajoie, Christy Mathewson and Cy Young.
