1909-11 T206 El Principe De Gales 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 El Principe De Gales Back are fairly difficult to find and are considered rare. For this reason, cards with El Principe De Gales Backs command a premium over common back T206s, and the demand is slightly higher due to the hardcore T206 "white borders" collector wanting the challenge of acquiring EPDG cards for their collection.
Some of the key Hall-of-Famers known to be included with an El Principe De Gales back are the: T206 Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, Christy Mathewson, John McGraw and Cy Young.
