Lot # 291 (of 1411)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1909-1911 T206 White Borders Collection Altered (28) Including Ty Cobb

Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,856.00

Collection of twenty-eight different T206 "White Borders" tobacco cards, highlighted by Ty Cobb's bat-off-shoulder pose. In our opinion, each of these cards has a subtle trim. Includes: Anderson, Jake Beckley (HOF), Ball (NY), Ball (Clev.), Bates, Bell (hands above head), Bell (pitching), Birmingham, Brain, Burch (bat), Ty Cobb (bat off, back damage, but otherwise an Ex-Mt appearance), Dineen (Dinneen), Doolin (Doolan), Downs, Dygert, Fiene (port.), Livingstone (Livingston), Maloney, Manning (bat), McCormick, Nattress, Phillippe, Purtell (Sovereign back), Ritter, Ryan (Southern Leaguer), Joe Tinker (HOF, port.), Vic Willis (HOF, throwing), and Wilson. Cards in this collection have an Ex to Nr/Mt appearance, but, as noted, in our opinion each has been very slightly trimmed. The trimming is very subtle and is impossible to detect without a trained eye. While these cards will never be graded by PSA, SGC, or GAI, they do represent an extraordinary value for the collector who wants beautiful original ungraded examples of these classics, at a far more affordable level than graded examples with a similar appearance. This is a very attractive collection of original T206s, including a few key Hall of Famers and rare cards from the set. Total 28 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $1,856.00
