Presented is a very 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. The condition is:
eight Vg to Vg-Ex, six Gd, five Fr, and six Pr (including some due to pinholes). 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 (open).
