Each card has been graded 30 GD 2 by SGC. Outfielder Bill O'Hara began his short career with the New York Nationals in 1909 and then moved on to St. Louis, where he appeared in only nine games in 1910. He never played another game of Major League Baseball after 1910. Ray Demmitt played for the New York Americans in his first season, 1909, and was then shipped off to the St. Louis Browns in 1910. There, he played in only 10 games. He did not appear in another major league game until 1914, when the outfielder resurfaced with Detroit. All of T206's other tobacco brands pictured O'Hara and Demmitt with their "New York" team identities, but Polar Bear didn't issue its cards until 1910, and presented both with the updated "St. Louis" captions. These variations are only found with Polar Bear backs, and typically suffer the brand's normal product staining. (Polar Bear was sold as a "scrap" tobacco, and its inserts were actually subjected to contact with the leafy, gummy product inside tobacco tins). Includes: Graded SGC 30 GD 2: 2 cards w/ Demmitt/St. Louis ("Polar Bear") and O'Hara/St. Louis ("Polar Bear"). Good condition throughout.
