E105 Mello-Mints (Issued circa. 1909-1910)

These cards are on very thin paper stock and quite fragile in nature.
Judging by their rarity it is assumed that they were just distributed in Texas and/or the lower mid-western states. This checklist for this 50 card set is the same as the E92/E101 list. The art work is identical as well.

Some examples are found with a very concise vertical crease. It is believed that this may have been caused by the manner in which they were packaged but if that were true I would imagine a majority of the cards still existing would come this isn't the case. A munber of players are MUCH more common due to a find some years ago. Among the more common players are Bescher, Knight, Lajoie, Young.
