T222 Fatima Overview

T222 Fatima BackT222 Bush.jpgFatima is known for two baseball issues. The first, T200, was a team issue. Their T222 set, however, was more traditional, focusing on individual players. Fatima was a Liggett and Myers Tobacco Company brand.

T222 cards have a sepia tone featuring a player’s picture on the front. His name and team name are printed on the bottom in a small font and these cards have a Fatima advertisement printed on the back. 100 cards are in the set as advertised on the card backs with about half of that comprised of baseball players.

The back also included a special promotion for premium items. Coupons placed inside packages of Fatima products had a value of approximately 1 1/2 cents each. Consumers could trade those coupons for any one of ‘about 800 useful and valuable premiums,’ as described on the back.

Others in the set include more athletes as well as photoplay stars. However, despite the 100-card promise, only about 70 cards have been discovered to date. Because of that, the full checklist does not appear to be complete.
