Catalogued T1 by Jefferson Burdick in the American Card Catalog, this striking premium set issued in 1900 includes twenty-five colorful lithographed cards (8.25 x 6.25 inches) featuring various then very well known actresses dressed in theater costumes, highlighted by such stars as Ethel Barrymore and Lillian Russell. Each card in this set could only be obtained by redeeming the coupons, which were included in packages of Turkish Trophies cigarettes. Bright, clean, and extremely impressive, the set grades Excellent overall (includes a few slightly better). The blank reverse of each card is perfectly clean. This very scarce issue is rarely offered as a complete set and is accompanied by the original mailing envelope. Total 25 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600+. SOLD FOR $705
