Spectacular T5 Pinkerton Cabinet card of the Pirates' fan favorite Tommy Leach.  Issued in 1911 as a premium for which a consumer of Pinkerton's tobacco products could redeem ten coupons, the T5 Pinkerton cabinets are, unlike T3 Turkey Reds, "true" cabinets - consisting of a photograph affixed to a heavy cardboard mount.  Like the N173 Old Judge cabinets, it is unknown how many cards were actually produced, and a complete checkllist will likely never be developed (although early advertising for the promotion indicated that 376 different cabinets were initially available).

It should be noted that SGC generally grades all T5 cabinets "Authentic" rather than assigning numerical grades.  This example presents very well, the mount having done an exceptional job protecting the photo, though pinhole markings can be seen at the top border, a typical issue with oversized cabinets and cards of the era.
