1906-1928 Tobacco, Caramel and Assorted Collection of 118
Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $8,625.00
Tremendous collection of early 20th century cards, spanning the years from 1906 to 1928, with representation of 30 different sets, including many of the era's most classic issues, many rare, obscure issues, and including many stars and Hall of Famers. Highlighted by E121 Cobb, W502 Cobb, 1914 Polo Grounds Game Card of Honus Wagner, and E92 Wagner, numerous other significant cards are included in this fascinating assortment of 118 early cards, which qualifies as a collection unto itself. These groups take a lot of work to catalog, but we think it's worth it. Many very advanced collectors started with a painstakingly catalogued collection of vintage cards such as this, purchased in a Robert Edward Auctions sale. 1906 Fan Craze: AL- Isbel.
