Default What are the tobacco back ads on the existing T206 Honus Wagners?

Curious. Does anyone know what specific tobacco advertisements are on the backs of the existing Honus Wagner T-206 cards?

Confirmed to exist on T206Resource.com:

Piedmont 150, Factory 25, 2nd District, Virginia
Sweet Caporal 150, Factory 25, 2nd District, Virginia
Sweet Caporal 150, Factory 30, 2nd District, New York

There's also a blank back proof strip, but that's actually no advertising.

And if you search ebay long enough, you might find a Cobb back on a Wagner.

Anyone have a completed Wagner back run? Piedmont is particularly tough, no?

Same 3 backs for E Plank plus the SC 350, 30 - couldn’t have been companion cards

What do you mean by a Cobb back on the Wagner.... it'd most certainly be a Wagner back on the Wagner...!

I thought the only Piedmont was the 8 but I see there is another one. I thought that had been an argument that the 8 was sheet cut. Maybe I have this wrong.

I don't know how many Pd there are, but #18 is a scrap, there is an overprint layer on the front. This is also known as Johnny Vs favorite card.

Putting the 8 to one side, there are no known Piedmonts that came out of cigarette packs, right?
