Introduced in 1905. Discontinued in 1927. This
deck replaced the one-way three-winged design featured on Tri-Tire No. 1. Despite a much longer
run, Tri-Tire No. 2 is considerably harder to find than its predecessor. Perhaps the design had
run its course and other new Bicycle backs became more popular.
Below is a throw-out card from the Lingermans, a
ventriloquist - magician husband and wife team. They evidently offered a very wholesome show.
