1909-11 T206 Brown Hindu 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 Brown Hindu Back are more difficult to find than their Piedmont and Sweet Caporal T206 counterparts. For this reason, cards with Hindu backs command a premium and are sought after by hardcore T206 "white borders" collectors.
Some of the key Hall-of-Famers known to be included with a Hindu back are: Roger Bresnahan, Frank Chance, Ty Cobb, Johnny Evers, Walter Johnson, Nap Lajoie, Christy Mathewson and Cy Young.
