About this set: Some of the most beautiful cards ever issued are in this set which combines vintage photography and classic drawings of players and managers of the "dead ball era." Among the subjects of the portraits, which are nearly identical to those in the previous year's T205 set, are Hall of Famers: Cobb, Mathewson, Johnson, Young, Collins, Baker, Bender, McGraw, Speaker, Brown, Griffith, Bresnahan, Wallace, Wheat, Jennings, Clarke, Walsh, Marquard, Evers, Tinker and Chance. The center panels feature vintage photos (many of them action shots) picturing Hall of Fame greats including: Cobb, Speaker, McGraw, Lajoie, Crawford, Baker, Wheat, Collins, Clarke, Bender, Evers and Chance.
The "Rookie card" of Smokey Joe Wood is also included. His is one of the only portrait subjects in the T202 but not the T205 set.
This set is extremely condition-sensitive because the cards came folded and are printed on thin paper. Additionally, many of the cards are often found off-center or miscut.
