Presented is an extremely attractive complete set of T51 Murad Cigarettes "College Series" cards. The cards measure 2-1/16 x 2-11/16 inches and are very colorfully illustrated, most with an athletic image and the seal and pennant of the college depicted, and 10 with only the seal and pennant. The designs will look familiar to collectors as they are shared between these cards and the larger T6 Murad premiums 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. Condition:
49% Vg to Vg-Ex (including a few Ex), 22% Gd (including many due to pencil on backs), and 29% lesser. The majority of the cards have factory packing stamps on the backs, which is very common to this issue. Also included are three variations: Bowdoin, Bucknell, and Northwestern. This is a scarce and extremely popular 1910-era set appealing to sport and nonsport collectors alike. Total: 153 cards (complete set of 150 plus three variations). Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
