|E98 Anonymous Issuer (Issued circa. 1910)|
E98 cards come in one of four different color backgrounds - Red, Blue, Green and Orange. It is assumed that all 30 players can be found with all four different background colors.
I have not noticed
that one color background is particularly harder to find then
The checklist below follows the numbering on the back of the cards.
There are cards with a "Old Put" Cigars stamp on the back. I don't think it is coincidence that a card with no issuer printed on the card has a stamp like this. Dads come in and buy cigars - owner gives them a card (with the store name) for their son. Son then pressures Dad to go back for more cards. Pretty smart sales move I'd say. I don't think the cards with the "Old Put" stamp should be considered a separate issue.
