L5 Hamilton King Girls Leathers Overview


Similar to the more popular L1 Baseball Players Leathers set, the L5 Hamilton King Girls Leathers set was a tobacco premium. Unlike that set, which featured popular baseball players of the era, the L5 issue depicted various generic women.

This set was a mix of sports and non-sports issues. Most of the sports recognized in the set were outside of the big four. Several sports included, for example, were golf, tennis, and fencing. One, however, is very significant in that it features a girl playing basketball. The item is one of the earliest basketball collectibles.

L5 Leathers are almost the same as their L1 counterparts. However, the L5 issue utilizes paint in the images.

Here are pictures of the leathers in the L5 Hamilton King Girls set.
