The Al Simmons box measures 10-1/4 x 5-1/2 x 3" and rates apparent FR condition overall with professional reinforcement along the lid hinge. Highlighting the sextet of labels is a circa-1905 "Home Run Cigar" 8"-diameter label (GD w/handwritten notations/errant marks) that may well be a one-of-a-kind. Its lovely home-plate action scene appears on a contemporary cigar box and tin, but our research has not turned up another example of this very label. Also present are labels for "National League Perfectos" (8-5/8 x 4-3/4", EX) and "Federal League Bourbon Whiskey" (4-3/8 x 5", VG), as well as 3 Simmons-brand cigar bands (3" long, NM).
