1913 T200 Fatima Chicago Nationals Team Premium

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $5,100

This large team photograph of the Chicago Nationals was issued as a special premium by Fatima cigarettes. Hall of Famers Roger Bresnahan and Johnny Evers highlight this Cubs team. 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. The offered example is absolutely stunning! It has a very attractive mounted photograph, with flawless contrast and crystal-clear image. The mount is in perfect condition, with no surface wear visible. This premium has been professionally framed to total dimensions of 17.25 x 25 inches. We have not examined the premium outside of the framing. This is a superb and display-ready example of this extreme tobacco-card premium rarity highlighted by Hall of Famers Roger Bresnahan and Johnny Evers. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $5,100
