    1912 S81 Large Silk Christy Mathewson #108. Today, most coupons entitle you to a discount on the price of an item. One hundred years ago coupons were a lot more fun to save as they could be exchanged for a lengthy list of premiums and products. "Turkish Trophies" cigarette coupons could be redeemed for a trio of the finest sports collectible sets ever produced. Offered is an approx. 7" x 8-1/2" silk of the top pitcher of that era--Christy Mathewson. The delicate woven cloth is easily damaged but a find of Mathewson silks has allowed collectors the opportunity to add a high grade fragile relic to their collection. This example shows hardly any sign of age or handling. Some stray silk at the top/left corner and the rest is close to perfection. Mathewson's full figure portrait remains bold with no damage.
