Turkey Red (Tar Cards)
Hand-painted collectible baseball card
After a number of tests, I've recently developed a paint technique to create a nicotine tar-like effect. The first Tar Card I'm issuing is this Turkey Red Dustin May 1/1... a fitting design for the long ginger-haired righty.
In 1910, the American Tobacco Company introduced T3 Turkey Red baseball "cabinet" cards. Each T3 featured a colorful player image on larger 5-3/4” x 8” card stock, with a beveled border that looked like picture frame... or cabinet door. Topps pays homage to this design in 2020.
Pre-orders are available for a handful of other cards from this set, but there's no telling what design I might tar each card with! It could be another Turkey Red cigarette ad... or a total surprise.
