One of the largest, most elaborate and expensive of all baseball related tobacco premiums, the classic S110 pillowcase could be obtained only by mail in exchange for coupons packaged with Helmar and Turkey Red Tobacco products. This pillowcase features Christy Mathewson in the center surrounded by “Home Run” Baker, Tris Speaker, Ty Cobb, and Marty O’Toole. The illustrations of the ballplayers are identical to those used in the S81 premium silk set, and almost identical to those used in the T3 Turkey Red set and the rare L1 Leather set, all of which were part of this same promotion. The pillowcase was the ultimate prize of the promotion, requiring 100 coupons, the most coupons for the redemption of any prize. There is some scattered staining and soiling throughout, otherwise very good condition. Framed. Pillowcase: 22 ½” by 22 1/2”. Frame: 28” by 30”.
1912 S110 LARGE BASEBALL SILK PILLOWCASE FEATURING COBB, MATHEWSON, BAKER, SPEAKER AND OTOOLE
