In Today's Mail - T207s

I was pleasantly surprised to find these in the mail today. I wasn't expecting them this soon after the auction.

Both are 1912 T207's, the first Smoky Joe Wood and the second Harry Hooper. Neither card is in good condition. Wood has a big crease and tape on the back. Hooper has paper loss on the back. I'm still happy to add them to my collection. They were both on my want list. Wood's career was short, but he produced some of the best seasons a Red Sox pitcher has ever had. An interesting thing about him is that he lived to be 95 years old. Hooper played 12 solid seasons with the Red Sox and is enshrined in the Hall of Fame. Both of these players won multiple World Series championships with the Red Sox.
