All collectors will agree that the true Rookie Card of Billy Hamilton can only be found in the 1887-90 Old Judge tobacco set. Subsequently, another popular, early card depicting Hamilton was included within the 1888-89 Old Judge Cabinets issue. Another very popular choice among Hamilton card collectors is his 1895 Mayo Cut Plug card. Although not a baseball card, the 1898 Cameo Pepsin Pinbacks set offers collectors another opportunity to pick up an early collectible of Billy Hamilton. Finally, an extremely scarce Hamilton card was produced in 1899 in conjunction with the Chickering Studio Cabinets issue depicting Boston players of the era.
