1912 T202 Hassan Triple Folders Near Complete PSA Set (130/132)

Starting Bid - $10,000.00, Sold For - $63,250.00

The beautiful lithography, the great number of stars represented, and the unique design of T202 Hassan Triple Folders combine to make it one of the most highly regarded of all baseball card sets of the era. Offered is a complete set missing just two cards for completion (commons #52 and #62). Of the 130 cards, 124 have been graded and encapsulated by PSA. Included are all five Ty Cobbs, eight Christy Mathewsons, and literally dozens of stars and additional Hall of Famers. T202s are unnumbered. In the following condition composite, identifying card numbers are referenced from the numbers provided by the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards checklist. PSA is notoriously hard on T202s, due to the "spider creases" which naturally occur along the folds of the side panels, as well as roller marks that are so common to the issue. These natural manufacturing flaws result in particularly harsh grading by PSA. The offered (near) set is one of the finest T202 sets we have ever seen, with virtually all cards presenting far nicer than suggested by the very respectable but harsh grades received. Condition composite: Two cards grade PSA NM-MT 8: #33 and #75. 14 cards grade PSA NM 7: #10, #27 Clarke/Gibson (mk, HOF), #40 Collins/Murphy (HOF), #51, #66 (oc), #78, #82 Mathewson/Fletcher (HOF), #96, #97, #107 Speaker/Engle (HOF), #114, #123, #125 "Too Late For Devlin" Mathewson/Devlin (Giants rarity, HOF), and #129 "Ty Cobb Steals Third" Cobb/Jennings (HOF). 21 cards grade PSA EX-MT 6: #3 "A Desperate Slide For Third" Cobb/O'Leary (HOF), #15 Bresnahan/Harmon (HOF), #25 Chase/Wolter, #34 Walsh/Payne (HOF), #36 Speaker/Wood (mc, HOF), #38 Clarke/Byrne (HOF), #44 "Devlin Gets His Man" Mathewson/Devlin (Giants rarity, HOF), #48, #56, #58, #60 Evers/Archer (HOF), #65 "Fast Work at Third" Cobb/O'Leary (HOF), #68 "Good Play at Third" Cobb/Moriarity (HOF), #76 Cicotte/Stahl, #85 Mathewson/Meyers (HOF), #93, #95, #105 Clarke/Miller (HOF), #110 Huggins/Evans (HOF), #113, and #118. 63 cards grade PSA EX 5: #2 Wallace/Pelty (HOF), #5, #6 (mk), #7, #11, #12, #13, #14 Bresnahan/Oakes (mk, HOF), #16 Chance/Foxen (HOF), #17, #18, #19 (mk), #24, #29, #30 Baker/Barry (HOF), #31 Bender/Thomas (HOF), #32, #37, #39 Collins/Baker (HOF), #42, #46 Mathewson/Fletcher (HOF), #49, #50, #53, #55, #59 Speaker/Engle (HOF), #61 Chance/Evers (HOF), #64 Tinker/Chance (HOF), #67, #69, #71, #73 (mk), #74, #79 Bresnahan/McGraw (HOF), #80, #81, #83 Marquard/Meyers (HOF), #84 McGraw/Jennings (HOF), #86, #87, #88 Johnson/Knight (HOF), #89, #90 Young/Kling (HOF), #91, #92, #94, #98, #99, #100, #101 Griffith/McBride (HOF), #104 Chase/Wolter, #108, #109, #111, #115 Baker/Barry (HOF), #116 Brown/Graham (HOF), #119, #120, #121, #124, #127 Marquard/Meyers (HOF), #128, and #131 Austin/Stovall. 16 cards grade PSA VG-EX 4: #4, #8 Baker/Collins (mk, HOF), #21 Chase/Wolter, #22 Clarke/Gibson (HOF), #23, #26 Chase/Wolter, #45 Mathewson/Devlin (Rustlers, HOF), #47 Mathewson/Meyers (HOF), #54, #63, #70, #77, #102, #106 Speaker/Wood (HOF), #112, and #132 Wheat/Dahlen (HOF). 4 cards grade PSA VG 3: #43, #122, #126 Mathewson/Devlin (Rustlers, HOF), and #130 "Ty Cobb Steals Third" Cobb/Moriarity (HOF). 4 cards grade PSA Good 2: #20 Chance/Shean (HOF), #28, #35, and #103.
