1909-1911 T206 Southern Leaguer Complete Set SGC Graded (48)
Starting Bid - $1,000.00 , Sold For - $12,925.00
The Southern Leaguers have always been appreciated for their scarcity and as a popular subset to the T206 series. They have also always been listed at a significant premium in relation to regular cards in the set. Presented is a complete set of all forty-eight scarce T206 Southern Leaguers, each graded and encapsulated by SGC (except one which is graded by PSA). One card is EX/NM 80, eight cards are EX+ 70, six cards are EX 60, eight are VG/EX 50, sixteen are VG 40, seven are GOOD 30, and two are graded FAIR 20. SGC Condition Report Composite: One EX/NM 80: Fritz - New Orleans (Old Mill back). Eight EX+ 70: Bay - Nashville (Old Mill back), Guiheen - Portsmouth, Helm - Columbus (Old Mill back), McCauley - Portsmouth (Old Mill back), Mullaney - Jacksonville, Paige - Charleston, Ryan - Roanoke (Old Mill back), and Thornton - Mobile (Old Mill back). Six EX 60: Bastian - San Antonio, B. Hart - Little Rock (Old Mill back), J. Hart - Montgomery (Old Mill back), King - Danville, Reagan - New Orleans, and Smith - Shreveport. Eight VG/EX 50: Ellam - Nashville (PSA VG-EX 4, Old Mill back), Lentz - Little Rock, Miller – Dallas, Otey - Norfolk (Old Mill back), Persons - Montgomery (Old Mill back), Revelle - Richmond (Old Mill back), Rockenfeld - Montgomery, and Westlake - Danville (Old Mill back). Sixteen VG 40: Bernhard - Nashville, Breitenstein - New Orleans (Old Mill back), Cranston - Memphis, Foster - Charleston, Greminger - Montgomery, Hickman - Mobile (Old Mill back), Hooker - Lynchburg (Old Mill back), Howard - Savannah (Old Mill back), Jordan - Atlanta (Old Mill back), Lafitte - Macon (Old Mill back), Orth - Lynchburg, Shaughnessy - Roanoke (Old Mill back), Smith - Atlanta (Old Mill back), Thebo - Waco, Violat - Jacksonville, and White – Houston (Old Mill back). Seven GOOD 30: Carey - Memphis (Old Mill back), Coles - Augusta, Lipe - Richmond, Manion - Columbia (Old Mill back), Perdue - Nashville, Seitz - Norfolk (Old Mill back), and Stark - San Antonio (Old Mill back). Two FAIR 20: Kiernan - Columbia (Hindu back) and Molesworth - Birmingham. The scarcity of the Southern Leaguers have always made putting together a complete T206 set particularly difficult. This is a very impressive complete collection of Southern Leaguers, with most cards having an appearance superior to their technically accurate assigned grades. The equivalent SMR value of just twenty-three of the forty-eight cards from the group, those graded VG/EX 50 to EX/NM 80 (the one EX/NM, fourteen EX to EX+, and eight VG/EX, but not including the sixteen VG 40s, seven GOOD 30s, and two FAIR 20s) is $4,145. Total 48 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000+. SOLD FOR $12,925.00
