I love to collect vintage cards but some of the early tobacco cards are pretty pricey. I've decided to add at least one example from certain sets, the first one being T205. I have several T206s and a few other odds and ends from the tobacco era but I had never owned a T205 until now. The set has never really appealed to me for the most part but I wanted to own at least one, since it is an iconic set. This card was priced right and depicted a Cardinal so it was a win win, despite the probable trim job at the bottom.
John Lush compiled a 66-85 record over seven seasons (1904-1910) with Philadelphia and the Cardinals. He had a nice 2.68 ERA for his career.
