The 1909-11 T206 Fred Snodgrass “Catching” card, backed by Polar Bear tobacco, is a fascinating artifact from one of baseball’s most celebrated vintage card series. The T206 set, known for its iconic design and the famous Honus Wagner card, also includes a wide variety of players and back advertisements, with the Polar Bear back being one of the more distinctive due to its association with snuff products. Fred Snodgrass is remembered for his tenure with the New York Giants, where he played a crucial role in their National League pennants in 1911 and 1912. Despite a notable error in the 1912 World Series, Snodgrass had a commendable career, making his cards cherished by collectors who value the rich history of baseball.

The T206 cards, often referred to as “The Monster” by collectors due to the set’s extensive checklist and variations, are a cornerstone of the hobby. The inclusion of a Polar Bear advertisement adds a layer of rarity and desirability, especially for cards in any condition. A grade of PSA 1.5 indicates that while the card has seen better days, it still holds significant historical and collectible value, embodying the early 20th century’s passion for baseball and the beginnings of the sports card collecting phenomenon.
