1902-1903 T7 Turkish Trophies "Hamilton King Girls" Collection (30)
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $411
Collection of thirty T7 Turkish Trophies "Hamilton King Girls" tobacco premiums (twenty-eight of 111 in the set, plus two duplicates). The T7 "Hamilton King Girls" are rare and among the most striking nonsport tobacco premiums ever issued. These premiums feature magnificent full-color artistic drawings of pretty women. The set is organized into six separate series, each with a different theme: "Sketches," "Girls," "Bathing Girls," "Period Gowns," "Flag Girls," and "Bathing-Athletic-Dancing Girls." The thirty T7 premiums in this collection include subjects from five of the six sub series: 1) T7-1 Sketches (6 cards): #2 Woman walking dog, 3 Woman with riding crop, 7 Woman playing ping pong, 8 Woman with tennis racquet, 9 Woman in car, and 12 Woman shows slip. 2) T7-2 Girls (3 cards): #13 Raining in London, 15 A Princeton Girl, and 16 A Quiet Game. 3) T7-3 Bathing Girls (3 cards): #26 Atlantic City (mounted on a cardboard mating), 29 Asbury Park, and 35 Coney Island. 4) T7-5 Flag Girls (9 cards): #63 Spain, 71 France, 73 Denmark, 74 Portugal, 75 Sweden, 78 Turkey, 79 Italy, 84 Norway, and 86 Canada. 5) T7-6 Bathing-Athletic-Dancing (9 cards): #90 Tennis, 92 Rowing (2), 97 Cabaret Dancer (2), 98 Light Opera Dancer, 100 Old Point Comfort, 101 Newport, and 107 Long Beach. Twenty-one of the premiums range from Gd to Vg-Ex (averaging Vg), and nine premiums range from Pr to Fr. T7s are big cards; due to their large size they tend to be subject to a little more corner wear and creases than smaller cards, and were also often tacked up on walls, which is why pinholes are so common with this issue. Most of these cards have tremendous visual appeal despite their various mostly minor condition problems. Colorful, scarce, and beautifully lithographed, this is a very substantial collection of these quality nonsport tobacco premiums. Total 30 premiums. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $411
