Description: 1886 Lorillard Tobacco Detroit BBC team card. Rare and desirable team card issue from Lorillard Tobacco picturing individual vignette images of the Detroit players incl. Hanlon, Brouthers, Richardson, Baldwin, Rowe, and Bennett. The front of the card remains in outstanding original condition with fresh color and four fairly sharp corners. The reverse of the card features the Detroit home and away schedules along with an advertisement for Lorillard tobacco. The back has some paper residue (on top of the surface) from scrapbook removal and there is an abrasion to the top left which remains adhered to the scrapbook page from which it was removed. The scrapbook page is included which has the piece missing from the abrasion area still adhered to the front. It is very likely that professional restoration could restore the piece to the back of the card: Front" EX/MT-NM, Back: GD-VG
