1913 T200 Fatima Team Graded Collection (11)
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $3,525.00
Fatima Cigarettes is responsible for one of the most unusual and distinctive of all tobacco card issues: the T200 Fatima team card set. This lot includes eleven of the sixteen team cards issued in the set. Each card has been graded, two by PSA and nine SGC. Condition report: Brooklyn Nats (SGC FAIR 20), Chicago Nats (SGC VG/EX 50), Cincinnati Nats (SGC GOOD 30), New York Nats with Christy Mathewson and Jim Thorpe (SGC FAIR 20), Philadelphia Nats (SGC VG 40), Pittsburgh Nats with Honus Wagner (SGC FAIR 20), St. Louis Nats (SGC Auth), Boston Amer. (SGC FAIR 20), Chicago Amer. (PSA GOOD 2), Philadelphia Amer. (SGC POOR 10), St. Louis Amer. (PSA GOOD 2). Collectors are usually somewhat forgiving regarding condition when dealing with Fatimas because the fragile surface of these unusual real photo team cards makes them especially susceptible to creasing. As is always the case with T200 Fatimas, these cards are graded very harshly and look far better than their assigned grades. T200 Fatimas is a set which is not practical to collect in Mint condition. In fact, there has never been a T200 Fatima graded Mint by PSA and 75% of all graded examples have been between Poor and Vg-Ex, with almost others Ex (fewer than one-half of one-percent in higher grades including just one Nr/Mt-Mt). This set is also just beginning to be appreciated for its combination of rarity, unusual design, photographic quality, and the exceptional value they represent compared to other more common tobacco card issues of the era. Total 11 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $3,525.00
