1910-1911 T6 Murad "College Series" Complete Set (25)
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $2,014.50
Presented is an extremely attractive complete set of T6 Murad Cigarettes "College Series" premiums. The cards measure 5 x 8 inches and are very colorfully illustrated, most with an athletic image and the seal and pennant of the college depicted, and three with only the seal and pennant. The designs will look familiar to collectors as they are shared between these premiums and the smaller T51 Murad issue. The Murad "College Series" sets feature a variety of sports but are especially noted for the inclusion of baseball and football as well as some of the earliest basketball and hockey cards produced. Overall condition on this set ranges from Gd to Vg-Ex (averaging Vg) with one lesser. Each card was housed in a scrapbook via corner mounts, causing some corner creases and reverse discoloration which must be noted for accuracy, but every card presents with a strong central image often better than the assigned technical grade. The reverse features a checklist and redemption offer. This is a scarce and extremely popular 1910-era set appealing to sport and nonsport collectors alike. Total: 25 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $2,014.50
