Topps Announces T-206

Topps announced on Thursday morning that it will be bringing back the classic T-206 brand of baseball cards this fall 100 years after the original release.
The company is creating a six-card preview set made exclusively for attendees of the 24th annual Hawaii Trade Conference on April 19-23 in Florida. The set will include Honus Wagner, Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth, Rogers Hornsby, Jackie Robinson and Ty Cobb.
The tobacco-card sized preview cards will be limited to 100 copies apiece. They will be gifts to attendees of Topps’ “Meet the Industry” session at the conference on April 22.
Topps’ last T-206 release came in 2002, while a T-205 set was made in 2003-2004 and Allen & Ginter, which included tobacco-sized mini, has been made since 2006.
