1902-1903 T7 Turkish Trophies "Hamilton King Girls" (Period Gowns) Complete Set (25)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $470

Complete set of twenty-five T7 Turkish Trophies "Hamilton King Girls" tobacco premiums from the "Period Gowns" subset. 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 twenty-five T7 premiums in this group feature subjects from one of the six sub series. Ten of the premiums range from Vg to Ex (averaging Vg-Ex), and fifteen premiums are slightly lesser. 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 rarely offered subset of these quality nonsport tobacco premiums. Total: 25 premiums. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $470
