2013 Historic Autographs

In 2013, The Historic Autograph Company released a set called 'Historic Autographs Originals, 1909-12'. According to the sell sheet [1] the 88-card checklist consists of 68 original 1909-11 American Tobacco T206 cards and 20 original art cards. The cards were distributed by the box, with each box promising the following:
  • (1) Original 1909-11 Tobacco Card or (1) Historic Autograph Original Art Card; each displayed with (1) Player Cut Signature
  • (1) Complete Art Card Set (note: packaged separately)
  • (1) SP Card
  • (1) Checklist
Boxes were available in cases of 5, and only 180 cases were produced (900 boxes). Among the original Tobacco Cards in the set, was Pirates backstop George Gibson. In fact, Gibson was available numbered to 5. Since the set was issued in 2013, 3 of the 5 have been made available at public auctions. Posted below, are those three:
