CIGAR TIN

6" tall by 4 1/4" wide

Sold in 2005 Robert Edward 

Auction for $3,480.00 click here

 

To give an idea of how rare this tin is, in twenty plus years I estimate I have seen it offered twice, maybe three times. Once in the 2005 Robert Edward Auction, which this photo is from. The other time I think I recall it was in some high end advertising auction like James Julia or Skinners ten to fifteen years ago. Also note this example may have been repeated in those auctions. Given that and it's graphic quality I would place it in the exotic category of baseball memorabilia, and among the top five baseball tins in the world.
