1912 T202 Triple Folders Collection (52)

Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $9,280.00

Collection of fifty-two cards from this classic tobacco issue, highlighted by nineteen Hall of Famers, including two Christy Mathewsons and Walter Johnson. Thirty-seven of the cards have been graded and encapsulated by PSA (nine cards) or SGC (twenty-eight cards). As anyone who has seen graded T202s can verify, T202s tend to be graded very harshly, and almost all of these cards have an appearance far superior to their assigned grades.

The PSA grades are as follows: #17 Archer/McIntyre (VG 3), 27 Clarke/Gibson (HOF, PR-FR 1), 42 Hummel/Daubert (VG 3), 47 Mathewson/Meyers (HOF, VG-EX 4), 50 Leach/Wilson (VG 3), 52 Gibson/Philippe (VG 3), 75 Lord/Tannehill (VG-EX 4), 100 McBride/Milan (GOOD 2), 121 Fromme/McLean (GOOD 2).
