Collection of nineteen different (out of 25 in the set) T6 Murad Cigarettes "College Series" premiums, highlighted by the Williams College card (one of the earliest cards depicting basketball). The cards measure 5 x 8 inches and are very colorfully illustrated, most with an athletic image and the seal and pennant of the college depicted, and three with only the seal and pennant. The reverse features a checklist and redemption offer. The designs will look familiar to collectors as they are shared between these premiums and the smaller T51 Murad issue. The Murad "College Series" sets feature a variety of sports. This collection consists of the following: #1 Amherst College (erased pencil mark on reverse, otherwise Vg+), 2 Brown University (check mark on reverse, otherwise Vg+), 3 Columbia (Fr-Gd), 4 Cornell (Gd), 5 College of the City of New York (Fr due mostly to small spots of paper loss on reverse), 6 Dartmouth College (Vg), 7 Fordham University (Vg-Ex), 8 Harvard (Vg), 10 Pennsylvania State College (Vg+), 11 Princeton (Vg), 13 Swarthmore College (check mark on reverse, otherwise Vg+), 14 Syracuse University (Gd), 17 University of Illinois (Gd), 19 University of Missouri (Gd), 20 University of Pennsylvania (Vg), 21 University of Kansas (Gd), 23 Washington and Jefferson (Gd+), 24 Williams College (Vg) and 25 Yale (Gd+). This is a scarce and extremely popular 1910-era series appealing to sport and nonsport collectors alike. Total: 19 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
