Fable Series--1 to 50. A.T.C. Turkish Trophies Cigarettes. Most cards marked by the factory from which they were distributed, e.g. Factory No 7, 3rd Dist., State N.Y. £82.50 for a full set from Murray Cards International, Cecil Court, London, August, '97. Other cards through Ebay from Don Anthony, Phoenix, The Oak and the Reed ; Ron and Kathleen Hamill, Wakefield, RI; Josh Harris, Novato, CA; Andrea Howell, Bangor, PA; Glenn W. Kennedy, Flagler Beach, FL; Bill Miller, Fort Collins, CO; Teresa Poole, Springfield, MO; and Chris Stetzer, Red Lion, PA.
Delightful colored pictures and simple, straightforward tellings. With Murray, I arrange them alphabetically. I find no way to identify a number on the cards themselves. About 2¾" x 3 1/8". Though it may be disguised here through clever cropping, most of these cards have bumped corners. Among some pleasing art, my prizes for visual effect go to "The Blind Man and the Whelp," "The Fox and the Woodman," "The Mice in Council," and "The Peacock and the Crane."
