Vintage Baseball Cards from the Collection of Senator Richard B. Russell
- Coverage Dates: 1909-1911
The Vintage Baseball Cards from the Collection of Senator Richard B. Russell contains over one thousand baseball cards produced by the American Tobacco Company during the years 1909-1911, the height of the so-called dead-ball era. The majority of the cards come from the T-206 "White Border" set, the largest tobacco card set of the early 20th century and the one containing some of the most prized cards in the collecting world. All of the cards were collected by the aspiring "base ballist" Dick Russell beginning in 1909. The cards were found among his other juvenilia when additional materials came to the library in 1983.
