Default For Those of You who Like To Smell Your Cards

Posted By: Lee Behrens

I recently recieved a T206 card in the mail. I believe it may be a one of the kind card. It smelled heavily of cigarette smoke, I believe this to be Piedmont cigarette smell circa 1910. If my guess is true I have to believe it was smoke from one of cigarettes from the pack that the card actually came from. Now this truly has to be a rare item.

I will be taking offers for this card and smell that survived 95 years. I garuantee the card authentic, but can't gaurantee the smoke smell is from a legal substance. I hope that opening the envelope has not dimished it's value, it might smell a little cleaner than when I first opend the envelope. I am hoping to send it to PSA for card and smell authentication, if all else fails I am heading to Roy Huff, unless I receive an offer I can't refuse.

Don't miss out on a chance of a lifetime. If you do I will put it up on Ebay

God Bless,

Lee

I always remember this dealer from Florida who would set up in Atlanta once a month. I swear I would smell more bleech looking into his showcase than I do in my own laundry room... They were very clean cards though...

But is it smoke from a cigarette that the came out of the pack the card came in?

I didn't know there was such a thing as smoked caramel.
