Hassan Triple Folds Theory

Post by sandmountainslim on Wed Nov 17, 2010 11:45 pm

First off let me intro myself as a new member of the forum and small time collector of tobacco cards (no million dollar cards in my collection).

I have recently picked up a couple end panels from the T202 for cheap and while I have saw complete 202 cards I do not own any nor collect them.

Could it be possible that the original purpose of the triple fold cards was for them to be TWO cards and a photo rather than one complete long card??

To me the Hassan cards look like they were intended to be separated therefore giving the customer of Hassan Cigarettes two cards and a photo rather than the one card given out in the T205 sets by other cigarette brands....sort of a bargain.

Any thoughts on this ....or anyone wanna just scream "stone the blasphemer!" Very Happy

Anyways, nice to meet everyone and I am enjoying reading all the topics.

Very Happy
I was just trying to look at it from an ole timey 1912 tobacco company/consumer standpoint.
I bet alot of smokers said "Hey! TWO cards and a picture! Hell with Polar Bear, I'm smokin' Hassan!!"

Interesting theory I never thought of. It might have some credence with the end panels being color and the center panel being B/W. Although them not being perforated does not bode well for the theory.

I have always found it curious that the end panels tend to be teammates but the center panels tend to not be from the same team.

I will return fire to all stone throwers. sh*t hits the fan

Maybe they weren't meant to be separated, but...

T202s probably were not meant to be separated, but I'm sure back in the day some kids separated the ends from the middles, placed them in piles, and played with them.

I'm kind of glad for the separated cards. It makes the ends and middles very affordable for a poor collector, plus they're easier to store in plastic pages. Wink

Most, if not all, 1920s strip cards were not perforated.

I am not that familiar with most of the strip cards, if not perforated were there cut lines?

Johnny Crab, If you are looking for plastic sheets. There are 2 options, the tall boy sheets or the plastic sheets used for putting photo negatives in (I like them because they are horizontal and not vertical).

What I find weird about buying end and center panels is that many times you can buy a whole card cheaper than the sum of the whole.

Lee,
I didn't know the T202s fit in negative sheets. I have some of those somewhere. Thanks for the heads up! I might pick up a whole card in the near future.

I was also unaware the T202 'parts' can be more expensive than the whole card. I bought my center panels in a lot on eBay a few years ago for about $35, and I picked up a Joe Wood end panel for around $5. I haven't looked at prices since though.

Those are really good prices, but there are times when you see common end panels go for $10 + and HOFers go for $50+. Heck if you are patient you can get a whole Cobb for $300-$400.

T202s have always been all over the board, but with patience you can get cards for reasonable prices.

Quan, T202s have fold lines on the end panels (and sometimes in the center). I was making reference to other cards having perforations.

Ok, no one agrees on the Hassan cards so how about 1941 Double Play?
Each "half" of the cards had it's own number so were they not meant to be cut in half by the consumer?
Double Play was a more cheaply printed card than the Play Ball set so maybe they were trying to give kids twice the collection for the penny.
What say ye men??

Sounds like a new thread. It should get more responses.
