1911 T201 Mecca Double Folders Complete Set (50)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $3,190.00
Fifteen cards grade Vg-Ex to Ex, twenty-six Vg, and nine Gd. Cards which we have graded Vg-Ex appear Ex or better, and have been downgraded due to extremely minor flaws that are so common to this issue. The thin stock and fold over design of T201s make them especially susceptible to very small creases as well as light corner wear. In fact, as can easily be seen by accessing the PSA population report, that is precisely why so few T201s, even those which appear to be in Nr/Mt or Mint condition, ever find their way into PSA 7 or PSA 8 holders. Keys: Baker/Collins (Vg), Bender/Oldring (Vg-Ex), Bergen/Wheat (Vg), Bresnahan/Huggins (Vg-Ex), Bridwell/Mathewson (Vg), Brown/Hofman (Gd-Vg), Byrne/Clarke (Vg), Chance/Evers (Vg), Chase/Sweeney (Vg-Ex/Ex), Cicotte/Thoney (Vg), Cobb/Crawford (Vg-Ex/Ex), Dougherty/Lord (Vg), Falkenberg/Lajoie (Vg-Ex), Gardner/Speaker (Vg), Jennings/Summers (Vg-Ex), Johnson/Street (Vg), Lake/Wallace (Vg-Ex), McCarty/McGinnity (Vg), and Payne/Walsh (Vg). This set is exceptionally attractive and far superior in appearance than than the above technically accurate grades might suggest. This is a classic 1910-era tobacco issue highlighted by twenty Hall of Famers. Total 50 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $3,190.00
