Very early tobacco issue featuring portraits of 11 Chicago players on the front and the team's schedule on the back. The 1886 Chicago White Stockings(later to become the Cubs) would win the National League pennant with a 90-34 record, their fifth flag in 7 years. Among the players shown from this dominating team are Hall of Famers Cap Anson, King Kelly and John Clarkson. Small 1" x 1 1/2" piece is missing from bottom where the Lorillard ad originally was. Despite problems, still a great piece.
