1913 T200 Fatima Philadelphia Americans Premium
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,856.00
This large team photograph of the Philadelphia Americans was issued as a special premium by Fatima cigarettes. The Athletics are one of the most desirable teams in this series. This team includes Hall of Famers Connie Mack, Frank Baker, Eddie Collins, Chief Bender, and Eddie Plank. T200 premiums, which are giant versions of the T200 Fatima photos packaged with Fatima cigarettes, feature glossy team photos on thick cardboard mounts and are ideal for display. These large premium team cards are among the rarest of all baseball tobacco issues, and were available only by mail in exchange for forty coupons, which were included (one per pack) with Fatima cigarettes. Because of their large size, they often have numerous condition problems. This example has some minor chips along the very top of the mounted photograph, a chip to the cardboard mount in the upper left corner, and some foxing along the top border. These flaws could all easily be matted out if desired. The mounted photograph of the premium has flawless contrast, presents a magnificent and crystal clear image, and otherwise has an Excellent to Mint appearance. Dimensions: 21 x 13 inches. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,856.00
