One of the more unusual ACC designations is found with the 1912 L1 Leather premiums. This seldom encountered series was originally available as a promotional prize through the Helmar “Turkish Trophies” cigarette brand. The offered 1912 L1 Leather #130 Jake Stahl is ideal for the type collector. Measuring 10x12, the Boston first baseman (artwork borrowed from the 1911 T3 Turkey Red Cabinets series) is precisely captured on this well-preserved cowhide. Despite horizontal folding and leather stretching, the surface is otherwise detracted by only minor leather abrasions and light soiling. The stamped image is bold while the advertising reverse is unaffected by any significant flaws. An impressive rarity for the tobacco-era enthusiast.
