The exalted T206 "Monster" Set certainly needs no introduction, unquestionably residing as the foremost baseball card compilation in our illustrious hobby. Synonymous with an uncontrollable tsunami, its highly celebrated stature continues to steamroll ahead, with a seemingly infinite number of passionate collectors diligently pursuing the goal of assembling an entire set. When the American Tobacco Company (ATC) released their iconic tobacco issue in 1909, little did anyone realize over a century later, the 524 possible subjects would ultimately reside as an "industry leader", with its unparalleled popularity captivating an entire collecting community. Not even prestigious issues such as the 1914 Cracker Jacks, 1933 Goudeys or 1952 Topps can remotely compare to the pinnacle distinction associated with the ATC's "Monster Set" that includes a myriad of player variations and tobacco ad back combinations that relentlessly drive the insatiable tobacco market.
