   OED has 1910 for "picnic ham."  There are many advertisements in the NEW YORK TIMES of 1903 for "Armour's Picnic Hams," but there are earlier hits.  This is the first:

   16 May 1890, NEW YORK TIMES, pg. 2:
   ...California Hams, 6c, and boxed sweet-pickled picnic Hams, averaging 10 lb, 6 1/2c.
