    Description

    1913 Chicago Cubs Fatima Premium. Tobacco card collecting doesn't get much more challenging than the pursuit of the majestic Fatima premium, a large format version of the T200 team cards only available through the redemption of forty coupons from cigarette packs. The difficulty in attaining these premiums over ninety years ago kept the initial supply quite low, and the passing decades and large size making them susceptible to damage has whittled the survivors down to almost none. Here we present the Chicago Cubs version of this rarity, a third-place club this year featuring the Hall of Fame talents of Johnny Evers and Roger Bresnahan, each of who appears in crystal-clear contrast. The 11x18" image presents very well despite several tears through the emulsion that wander in diagonals of varying length across the piece. While the image was matted to the edge and elegantly framed, long ago, we believe that the original mount is no longer present, and that it was trimmed to the photo's border. None of these factors can detract from the tremendous visual appeal however, and any vintage team photo (much less one of this enormous size) from this era commands the collector's attention. Matting and framing carries final dimensions to 22.5x27.5".
