Fatima Cigarettes is responsible for two of the most unusual and distinctive of all tobacco-card issues: the T200 Fatima team card set and the T222 Fatima individual player card set. This lot includes a selection from both issues (thirteen T200 and four T222). 1) 1913 T200 Fatima team card near-complete set: 13 of 16 cards in the set, missing only the Chicago Americans, Detroit Americans, and Philadelphia Americans for completion. Condition report: Boston Nats (Gd), Brooklyn Nats (Gd), Chicago Nats (Gd), Cincinnati Nats (Fr), New York Nats with Christy Mathewson and Jim Thorpe (Gd), Philadelphia Nats (Fr-Gd), Pittsburgh Nats with Honus Wagner (Vg), St. Louis Nats (Pr), Boston Amer. (Vg), Cleveland Amer. with Joe Jackson (Gd), New York Amer. (Gd), St. Louis Amer. (Fr), and Washington Amer. with Walter Johnson and Chick Gandil (Gd-Vg). 2) 1914 T222 Fatima individual player series (4 cards): Fletcher (Pr), Oldring (Gd), Sallee (Pr), and Schang(Gd). 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. Total: 17 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $3,851
