This week's edition of GoMarquette.com's Throwback Thursday features a 1911 T-51 trading card of Marquette University and the track and field program, produced by Murad Cigarettes, S. Anargyros Corp. 

This card, produced in New York, was among 150 United States colleges and universities featured over six years that the set was released. Marquette was featured in the fourth set.

Just as many early trading cards came with bubble gum, the earliest version were produced by tobacco companies looking to move their product. Each T51 card measures approximately 2-1/16 inches by 2-11/16 inches.
