The collection contains the childhood baseball card collection of Richard B. Russell, Jr. There are approximately 1100 tobacco cards dating from the period 1911-1913, and most are in very good condition. These cards were produced by the American Tobacco Company during the height of the so-called dead ball era. The majority of the cards come from the T-206 "White Border" set, the largest tobacco card set of the early 20th century and the one containing some of the most prized cards in the collecting world.
