1912 T202 Hassan Triple Folders Partial Set (90 of 132)

Starting Bid - $2,000.00 , Sold For - $7,050.00

The beautiful lithography, the great number of stars represented, and the unique design of T202 Hassan Triple Folders combine to make it one of the most highly regarded of all baseball-card sets of the era. Offered is a partial set of this classic tobacco-card issue (90 different cards out of 132 in the set), missing forty-two cards for completion. Included are four Christy Mathewsons, Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, Cy Young, and literally dozens of stars and additional Hall of Famers. T202s are unnumbered. In the following condition composite, identifying card numbers are referenced from the numbers provided by the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards checklist. We have selected four cards to be graded by SGC. Please note that the grading companies are notoriously hard on T202s due to the “spider creases” which naturally occur along the folds of the side panels, as well as roller marks that are so common to the issue and are natural manufacturing flaws. The offered near-set has superior eye-appeal, with virtually all cards presenting far better than suggested by their technically accurate grades. SGC Condition Report (4 cards): #9 Johnson/Street (HOF, SGC VG-EX 50), 44 Devlin-Giants/Mathewson (HOF, SGC VG 40), 85 Mathewson/Meyers (HOF, SGC VG 40), and 129 Cobb/Jennings (HOF, SGC GOOD 30).
