NOTES:
 
    The "Fan for A Fan" cardboard baseball fans were produced by the American Tobacco Company as a premium, free with the purchase of a 5 cents sack of Bull Durham Smoking tobacco. The brief three month promotion only lasted from about June through August of 1913, resulting in one of the rarest collectibles in the hobby today. Beware of modern reproductions, that are artificially aged, and some do not have the baseball stitching graphics on the back. As advertised "All real baseball 'Fans' will want one on sight! All the ladies will want them--because these Fans are so novel, attractive and handy to have in the hot weather to keep you cool and comfortable." Customers were instructed to look for the Free Offer Sign in a dealers window and ask the dealer for a free "Fan for A Fan," after making the 5 cent sack of tobacco.

 There were five fans with the likeness of Famous Players featured on the "Fan For A Fan" premiums, which included; Frank 'Home Run' Baker, Hal Chase, Ty Cobb, Larry Doyle, and  Christy Mathewson. Each fan features a color portrait of the respective player set against a baseball design with the heading "A Fan For A Fan" above the portrait, and a facsimile signature of the player below. The back has a simple stitched baseball design. The fan measures about 7 1/4 in diameter and is slotted into a stick, the secured with two staples, giving it a handle that measures about 5 to 5 1/4 inches.
