Picked up a T218 Blank Back - anyone have other T218 oddities?
 
T218's are one of the easiest tobacco sets to find. I've owned hundreds and am building a complete master set, but have hardly seen any scrap or oddities. The set certainly appears to have had tighter quality control or less cards that escaped from the factory in an unfinished state than other common issues.

I picked up this Handy last week (not a boxer, but there isn't a swimming card forum!), only the second blank back I have seen (Rector is the other). The card appears handcut and is the correct thickness.


An Abe Goodman with a bad scan that was purported to be printed on thick cardboard appeared on eBay over a decade ago. I've never seen a partially printed card or anything like that. Never even a miscut bad enough to tell what the adjacent card is. Anybody have any?

Big fan of the set and its Canadian cousin the C52s, and have completed both sets. But you're right - I don't recall any real printing issues on these, aside from some miscut backs. Nice pickup with the blank back!

The only printing issue I have so far in my collection is this Tom Collins:

Me too. Thatís the only one I have seen in T218. I had it slabbed for protection only.

I love the off registered or misaligned colors like this and I always try to grab them when they appear. Thanks for sharing, theyíre pretty tough to find in T218

Iím working on the C52ís alongside my T218/T219 sets. Thankfully they arenít too expensive but Iím making very slow progress because they so rarely come up for sale. In my mind, C52 belongs as part of the T218s and Iíll have to finish them to have a master set. Maybe in 20 more years Iíll be close! Beautiful set to have completed

Now I see it..that porn 'stache distracted me.

Coincidentally, picked up this T220 miscut last night:

This is my favorite T-wreck:

T220 doesnít have many oddities either, I think. You beat me on the Ryan, my placeholder bid was the under and then I forgot to go back before it ended to bid again lol. First T220 miscut where you can see part of the next cards caption that I recall seeing. I believe your Coburn scrap came up on eBay many years ago and I lost it too. That Coburn is one of the coolest T cards I have ever seen, absolutely love it.

Besides these, the blank back silver border McAuliffe (without the silver applied) that came up at an auction house a couple years ago is awesome. I wish I had seen this card before it sold. Only blank back Iím aware of. I have a really weird white Lavigne missing a lot of partial inks that Iíve posted before. Iíll check my saved scans by put canít think of any others. Many cards you can see the back frame on the front right of the card as a grey ghost looking image

I donít believe Iíve seen anything weird or cool in T219 at all. I have a Welsh that is significantly oversized and a Papke that seems to have a printing alignment mark in the border but thatís it.
