Description

Offered is an impressive 1912 S110 pillowcase tobacco premium which features five keynote Cooperstown enshrinees. This exceptional fabric could only be obtained via mail in exchange for coupons packaged with the Helmar and Turkey Red tobacco brands. The delicate collectible, which has matted dimensions of 32x30, features a centered portrayal of Christy Mathewson, with "Home Run" Baker, Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson and Tris Speaker flanking the pitcher. The illustrations of the ballplayers have endured the century quite well with bright colors and crisp red stitching. Varying degrees of age-induced toning is also evident on the Baker, Johnson, Mathewson and Speaker renderings. The baseball-themed pillowcase was a premier prize in a promotional campaign which included other silks and the L1 Leather series. The fortunate winner will be a victor many times over with this ready-to-display piece.
