This quartet of 1911 T5 Pinkerton Cabinets features four world champion New York Giants players. Among the rarest of all 1910-era tobacco issues, T5 cabinets were issued as redemptions for coupons included in Pinkerton Tobacco cigarettes. Retaining their original 4-3/4" by 7-3/4" cardboard mounts, the 3 3/8" by 5-1/2" real photos present nicely with remarkable clarity. Downgraded due to discoloration of the cardboard mounts, the central images bear testament to the quality photography from over a century ago. Featured in this collection are cabinets of Beals Becker SGC 50/4, Al Bridwell SGC 50/4, Cy Seymour SGC 30/2, and Hooks Wiltsie (Wiltse) SGC 20/1.5. Speaking to the scarcity of the issue, each of these four cabinets represents the only one graded by SGC. Since PSA has not graded any cabinets of these four players, this represents a rare opportunity to add four "1 of 1" cabinets to even the most advanced collection.
