1910 T210 Old Mill Tobacco "Series 8" Collection (84)
Starting Bid - $5,000.00, Sold For - $12,760.00
Collection of eighty-four 1910 T210 Old Mill cards, all rare "Series 8" cards (out of the 114 cards which comprise the entire "Series 8" subset). 26% grade Vg-Ex (includes a few Ex), 64% range from Gd to Vg, and 10% are in slightly lesser grade. The T210 set is comprised of eight different series, each representing a different minor league. The "Series 8" cards feature players from the Southern Association. The 114 cards of the eighth series are universally recognized as among the rarest cards in the T210 Old Mill set. In fact, it is precisely because Joe Jackson appears in the eighth series that he is so rare in the Old Mill set. The eighty-four cards in this lot, as well as the Joe Jackson card offered else where in this auction, are from the very same original-owner collection. This collection included an extraordinarily high concentration of rare series cards, and has been broken up into several lots in this sale. While every card in this lot is much rarer than the T206 Wagner, we cannot help but note that one player in this collection of "Series 8" cards is named Wagner. This lot includes: Allen (Memphis), Anderson, Bartley, Bauer, Bay, Bayless, Berger, Bernhard, Bittroff, Burnett, Carson, Chappelle, Collins, Crandall, Daly, Davis, Demaree, DeMontreville, E. DeMontreville, Dick, Dobbs, Dudley, Elliot, Erloff, Farrell, Fisher, Fleharty, Flood, Foster, Fritz, Greminger, Griffin, Hanks, Hart, Hess, Hohnhorst, Huelsman, Jordan, Kelly, Kerwin, Keupper, LaFitte, Larsen, Lindsay, Lynch, Manush, Marcan, Maxwell, McBride, McCreery, Mclaurin, McTigue, Miller (Chattanooga), Molesworth, Newton, Osteen, Ower, Paige, Patterson, Pepe, Peters, Phillips, Rementer, Rhodes, Robertson, Rogers, Rohe, Schopp, Seabough, Seitz, Smith, Sid Smith, Swacina, Sweeney, Thomas (fielding), Thomas (portrait), Wagner (Birmingham), Walker, Wanner, Whiteman, Whitney, Wilder, Wiseman, and Yerkes. This is an exciting group for T210 collectors. Eighty-four cards is an extraordinarily large group for these extreme tobacco card rarities from the T210 Old Mill set. Total 84 cards. Reserve $5,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $12,760.00
