I have to admit that I am not much of a baseball fan, but I do love these old baseball cards. The colors are just extraordinary! These cards were distributed by the American Tobacco Company in the early 1990s in packs of cigarettes and loose tobacco.
Keep your eyes peeled for a Honus Wagner card, the rarest and most valuable of them all. Collectors believe Wagner's cards are rare because he stopped allowing the American Tobacco Co. to use his image, fearing it would encourage children to smoke. There are only 60 of his cards in existence, and one sold in 2007 for 2.35 million dollars.
