Circa 1910 T202, T205, T206 Tobacco Card PSA-Graded Collection (19)
Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $3,231.25
Collection of nineteen 1910-era tobacco cards consists of seven T202 Hassan Triple-Folders, ten T205 Gold Borders, and two T206 White Borders. This is a quality collection highlighted by ten Hall of Famers (among them Christy Mathewson) as well as many other high-demand cards. All the cards have been graded and encapsulated by PSA (unless otherwise noted), with condition ranging from VG-EX to EX-MT (with the exception of one VG). 1) T202 Hassan Triple Folders (seven cards): #2 Pelty/Wallace (HOF, GAI VG-EX 4), 6 Blair/Quinn (VG-EX 4), 38 Clarke/Byrne (HOF, VG-EX 4), 46 Mathewson/Fletcher (HOF, VG-EX 4 [MC]), 60 Evers/Archer (HOF, VG 3), 73 Dahlen/Scanlan (VG-EX 4), 76 Cicotte/Stahl ("Black Sox," VG-EX 4). Numbers reference Standard Catalog checklist. 2) T205 Gold Borders (10 cards): Home Run Baker (HOF, EX-MT 6), Ball (EX-MT 6), Delahanty (VG-EX 4), Miller Huggins (HOF, GAI EX 5), Hughie Jennings (HOF, GAI EX 5), Rube Marquard (HOF, EX-MT 6), Miller (VG-EX 4), O'Leary (SGC VG/EX 50), Stanage (SGC VG/EX 50), Summers (SGC VG/EX 50). 3) T206 White Borders (two cards): Mordecai Brown/portrait (HOF, VG-EX 4) and Rube Waddell/portrait (HOF, VG 3). This is a very attractive and overall fairly high-grade collection of tobacco cards from three of the era's most popular and classic sets, with an extremely high concentration of Hall of Famers. The SMR value (not including the one qualified card of Mathewson, and two VG 3s) is $3,260. Total 19 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000+. SOLD FOR $3,231.25
