babe ruth tobacco card

my grandpa pulled out a box of very old baseball cards he gave it to me going through i found a babe ruth pinch hit tobacco card. the card shows him holding three bats and a pouch of chew with a bit of a fresh chew sample inside. he said he got it at a rummage sale for 75 cents as a kid he never paid attention to it. i read up on this in a old newspaper i guess these cards where ment for adutls but they never though to look inside to find the sample. i do know that this was a way to get product name out and good for bussiness. im sorry guys i do not know more about this card i really wish i did
