The white label is hiding the factory designation on the top each of the colored silks but the factory is easily read and intact with little or no fraying

Nice silks. You always want to try to pick up the white version silks with the advertising still attached to the backs.

More awesome cards from Oriole's collection. I never noticed the auto on the cobb S74. I wonder why some went away from the national signature/american bats/trophy background of the T205s. Also some of the player pictures look a little different than the T205's, most notably to me, the Mike Mitchell. Really cool set.

Thanks, that is a tough one. I believe there are only two, maybe three, known to exist. Almost equally as tough is the Tony Smith - Rustlers version silk with any advertising back still attached to it. You can find find ad-backed versions of Tony Smith - Superbas silks without too much difficulty, but good luck finding an ad-backed one of him with the Rustlers. There are more than two of them out there, but not that many more.

You're right about that, here's the two Mitchell items side by side. You can clearly see the differences between the two images.
