    Description

    1913 Pittsburgh Pirates Fatima Premium. The great Honus Wagner and player/manager Fred Clarke pool their Hall of Fame talents to add yet more intrigue to this scarce and tremendously desirable premium. These vast (image size 11x18") keepsakes were only available to those enterprising enough to submit forty coupons from cigarette packs to Fatima headquarters, making the initial population well below even that of even the scarce Old Judge cabinets issued decades earlier. The large format of the Fatima premiums often led to damage and ultimately their demise, allowing just a handful of specimens to see the twenty-first century. Though we believe this one to be trimmed of its cardboard borders, the image itself remains in wonderful condition, with a couple of hairline horizontal cracks extending from the edges but barely extending to the bodies of the posed athletes. Otherwise there are no defects to undermine a NRMT appearance. The piece is matted and exquisitely framed, creating a display that would be at home in the most elegant of settings. A truly special Dead Ball era relic for the distinguished collector.
