Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,500
This large team photograph of the Philadelphia Americans was issued as a special premium by Fatima cigarettes. The Athletics are one of the most desirable teams in this series. This team includes Hall of Famers Connie Mack, Frank Baker, Eddie Collins, Chief Bender, and Eddie Plank. T200 premiums, which are giant versions of the T200 Fatima photos packaged with Fatima cigarettes, feature glossy team photos on thick cardboard mounts and are ideal for display. These large premium team cards are among the rarest of all baseball tobacco issues, and were available only by mail in exchange for forty coupons, which were included (one per pack) with Fatima cigarettes. Because of their large size, they often have numerous condition problems. This example is in exceptional condition. The mounted photograph on the premium has flawless contrast and presents a magnificent and crystal-clear image. There is virtually no wear to the mount and the four corners show only light touches of wear at the tips. The blank reverse is clean, with light foxing present in a few areas. This is a stunning T200 Fatima premium! Overall Excellent to Mint appearance. Dimensions: 21 x 13 inches. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $4,500
