1911 T201 Mecca Double Folders Complete Set (50)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,900.00
4 cards are Ex, 31 range from Vg to Vg-Ex/Ex, 13 range from Gd to Gd-Vg, 2 lesser. This is a very attractive mid-grade complete set of this classic tobacco issue. Most cards appear Ex at a glance and have been downgraded due to the minor flaws which are so common to the issue. The thin stock makes them especially susceptible to very light corner rounding. Keys: Baker/Collins (Fr due to tiny chip in lower left corner, otherwise Vg), Bender/Oldring (Vg), Bergen/Wheat (Vg-Ex/Ex), Bresnahan/Huggins (Gd), Bridwell/Mathewson (very light stain near left border, otherwise Vg), Brown/Hofman (Vg-Ex), Byrne/Clarke (Vg), Chance/Evers (Vg-Ex), Chase/Sweeney (Fr-Gd), Cicotte/Thoney (Fr due to corner chip lower right, otherwise Gd), Cobb/Crawford (Vg), Dougherty/Lord (Vg/Vg-Ex), Falkenberg/Lajoie (Vg-Ex), Gardner/Speaker (slight miscut, otherwise Ex), Jennings/Summers (Gd-Vg), Johnson/Street (Ex), Lake/Wallace (Vg), McCarty/McGinnity (Vg), and Payne/Walsh (Vg-Ex). Though not high-grade by PSA standards, this set is far above average for Mecca Double Folders, with eye-appeal far better than suggested by the technically accurate grades listed above. A bright, clean and (with few exceptions) very consistent complete set of one of the era's most classic tobacco issues. The T201 set includes twenty Hall of Famers. Total 50 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,900.00
