For some reason I have an affinity for this set. It maybe because this is the first tobacco card set I ever completed with a full 50 cards! Also it seems that you can still find these cards as reasonable prices. I listed lots of dupes on ebay and they don't seem to sell. Since I have a bunch of dupes I decided to break them into backs and see where I stood with regard to building "Back Type" sets with the 8 different brands. Turns out I am pretty far along on some brand sets and have a bunch of holes in others.
I am hoping others out there have stacks of dupes in your junker boxes that you would like to sell me or if you are working on a specific brand trade with me? Listed below are the 9 brands and the number of cards I have, if you are interested email and I can send my detailed want lists. Condition wise most of my collection is on the lower to VG range. Thanks!!
Recruit - Have 44
9 Brand - Have 13
13 Brand - Have 45
Jack Rose - Have 9
Sweet Caporal - Have 20
Sweet Caporal Wrappers - Have 5
Scrap Iron - Have 26
Sub Rosa - Have 25
I have 6 T113 dupes I'm looking to trade for some of the backs I don't have. All my dupes are Recruit - Arabia, Abyssinia, Holland, Germany, Burmah & the Philippine Islands. I have the following backs and am looking for others - Recruit, 9 Brand, 12 Brand and Sub Rosa. So, if you have Jack Rose, Sweet Caporal, Sweet Caporal Wrappers or Scrap Iron that you are willing to trade, I'm interested. My cards are in EX or so condition with the Philippine Islands being off-center L to R to the point that there is no border on the right.
