The T4 Obak Cabinet issue is among the most scarce of all tobacco issues of their era.  Distributed in conjunction with the T212 Obak cards, the 5"x 7" cabinet-sized premiums feature a black and white photo inside an oval "frame," with the player photo typically resembling the illustration on their corresponding Obak card.  In order to obtain one cabinet, 50 coupons from Obak Cigarette packs were required, and while a complete set of 175 subjects is theoretically possible, far fewer than that have thus been discovered.

Not currently listed as having been discovered by the Standard Catalog, we can confirm that the T4 cabinet of pitcher Roy Hitt exists, as we are offering it here.  Graded POOR 10 by SGC due to large pinholes at the top and bottom along with corner wear, the presentation remains strong - as if a collector interested in obtaining such a card could pick and choose among multiple examples in varying condition.
