1909-1911 T206 White Borders Collection (289)

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $7,637.50

Collection of 289 assorted 1909-1911 T206 White Borders (mostly different but includes quite a few duplicates) highlighted by fifteen Hall of Famers. 10% are Vg, 50% range from Gd to Gd-Vg, 40% are technically in slightly lesser grades, but are still great looking cards (includes several which appear Vg but have a slight trim). Eleven cards are encapsulated: Of these, eight cards have been graded GD-VG 2.5 by GAI, one card (Lajoie/throwing) has been graded GD 2 by GAI, one card has been graded PSA VG 3 [MC], and one SGC FAIR 20. Highlights: Baker (Fr, Polar Bear back), Chance/red (trimmed, Gd-Vg appearance), Chance/yellow (Pr), Chase/holding trophy (Vg), Chase/white cap (Fr-Gd), Chesbro (miscut along the bottom, otherwise Vg), Clarke/bat (trimmed, otherwise Ex), Clarke/portrait (Fr-Gd), Evers/Chicago (Fr-Gd), Griffith/portrait (miscut along the bottom, otherwise Vg), Jennings/portrait (possible slight trim, otherwise Vg), Lajoie/throwing (GAI Good 2, El Principe De Gales back), two Marquard/arms at side (both are slightly trimmed, otherwise with Vg-Ex/Ex appearance), Mathewson/dark cap (slight trim, otherwise Gd), McGraw/cap (slight trim, Ex appearance), and Tinker/hands on knees (Gd). This lot is ideal for the collector who wants original, authentic circa 1910 tobacco cards which capture the spirit of the history of the game and collecting, but does not want to spend a fortune. This is a very substantial group. Backs almost all Sweet Caporal and Piedmont, but also included are a few American Beauty and Sovereign. Total 289 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $7,637.50
