Fatima Cigarettes Team Cards, assigned the T200 reference number in the American Card Catalog, have been a staple in the hobby since they were issued in 1913. There are three rough tiers of difficulty in the set, with Brooklyn falling in the middle.  This SGC 1 is a typical specimen and appears to have been taken off a wall in a hurry, leaving a gap in the upper border. The creasing and corner wear have little impact on the image of the Superbas team.  A young Casey Stengel and Zach Wheat, who both hailed from Missouri, are the Hall-of-Fame players present here, with many names and faces familiar to tobacco card collectors filling out the roster.  The back has nice period toning.
