Turkey Reds were acquired by submitting redemption coupons found in Turkey Red cigarettes packs. You simply sent in your coupons and your desired player's name and waited for your premium to arrive in the mail. No doubt, the stars of the day, Mathewson, Cobb, Speaker, Brown, Young and Johnson were selected often. Bob Rhoades was probably almost never requested due to his less than stellar pitching. Hobbyists agree that Rhoades is by far the most difficult Turkey Red to find.
