Attractive and interesting selection of four packages and tins, once housing a variety of tobacco brands, each related somehow to baseball or the hobby.  Collection includes the following:  1) Mayo's Cut Plug Tobacco Tin: 8" x 5" x 4" tin litho tobacco box with tin handle and latch.  Imagery reminiscent of the N300 baseball set, varions minor dents along with some spots of foxing and rusting throughout but with a tremendous presentation. 2) Chicago Cubs Tobacco Tin: 1930s hinged tin with Chicago Cubs-related printing throughout.  Measuring 6 1/2" x 4 1/2" x 4 1/2", the piece exhibits significant wear throughout, primarily in the form of foxing and surface abrasions.  3) "4 Bagger" Tobacco Unopened Pack: Likely dating to the 1930s, unopened package of tobacco, measuring 3 1/2" x 5" x 1 1/2".  The package has been encased in cellophane wrap and we have elected to keep it that way for protective reasons, though it could easily be removed.  EX condition.  4) Home Run Cigarettes Unopened Pack: Though the brand was manufactured as late as the 1970s, this package likely dates to the 1920s.  Unopened and still wrapped in its original plastic wrap, tax stamps intact, EX condition with some minor peeling of the plastic at the top of the package.  Four pieces total.
