User Rating:

There are a couple of innovations found on T201 cards that would show up again in future sets. First, the idea of featuring two players on a single card who shared a picture showed up in the 1955 Topps Doubleheaders set. Second, a line of statistics appears on the back. Up to that point, card backs normally included advertisements and little else.

The cards were inserted into packages of Mecca cigarettes. A total of 50 cards (100 players) make up a complete set. While the name Mecca has a Middle Eastern flavor, the brand was part of the American Tobacco Company. The first part of the Twentieth Century marked an increased demand for Turkish tobacco among consumers and the Arabian names were concocted to help spur sales. Many of these names are familiar to collectors: Fez, Turkey Red, Hassan, Fatima, etc.

Card fronts show a lithograph painting of a player in action, with his name and team city printed in the top left corner. On the back, part of another player picture appears that can be flipped over onto the other picture. The rest of the back shows player statistics and an advertisement for Mecca cigarettes. The cards are unnumbered.

Card pairs generally pair up teammates. In some cases, both players are Hall of Famers. Ty Cobb and Sam Crawford make up one HOF combo, as do Cub infielders Johnny Evers and Frank Chance. However, the toughest card in the set features two common players, Patsy Dougherty and Harry Lord of the White Sox.
