Default Two to Tango at the Red Cross

Posted By: Scott Gross

Talk about only two to tango:

http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewBids&item=8810752698

Don't know what's scarier, Exhibitman picking up a Red Cross t219 for $120, or if one of us hadn't bid, it going for $60 ...... (oh, by the way, nice pick up Adam, grrrrrrrrrumble )

And speaking of RED CROSS brand, why are they so scarce/rare ???
I suspect it was an ATC brand. Was it an expensive product (that was too pricey for average customer), a crappy product (that no one liked), or, probably, a very local issue ???

I suspect that the product wasn't very well distributed in the 1900s; Lorillard's Red Cross was a venerable name in 19th century tobacco yet the 19th century boxing cards are more readily found than the 20th century cards.
