1913 Fatima Team Premiums Overview

pt200fatimapremiumIn 1913, Fatima produced what we now call today the T200 set. That issue includes team cards of the 16 major league teams. However, the company also produced a set of premiums as a special collectible.

The pictures used for the premiums were the same but had blank backs instead of the printed back found on the T200 cards. The biggest difference is the significant size of the premiums. While the T200 cards measured less than 3″ x 5″, these jumbo pictures are approximately 13″ x 21″, making them difficult to store properly.

The large, sepia pictures included members of the team and also printed the team name at the bottom. Player names are also printed making it easy to identify who is shown.

While Fatima is known mostly for these team issues, they also produced a set of individual players known as T222.
