1909-1911 T206 Scarce and Rare Backs Collection Including Lenox and Broad Leaf (59)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,644
Presented is a very interesting collection of fifty-nine different T206 tobacco cards, all with slightly scarce or rare backs. Twelve different advertising backs are represented, including “Lenox,” “Broad Leaf,” "Carolina Brights," and “Hindu”. This group was part of a much larger mixed-grade T206 card collection, the balance of which is being offered as a separate lot in this auction. When we noticed the collection included such an impressive number of cards with unusual backs, we thought many collectors would very much appreciate having these cards separated and offered as their own lot. This group includes two Hall of Famers (Bender and Brown). The collection consists of the following in the order of scarcity (with the order of rarity provided by the “T206 Museum” website): 1) Lenox - Black (1 card): Bender (HOF, bottom trimmed off). 2) Broad Leaf - Series 350 (1 card): Arellanes (Pr). 3) Carolina Brights (2 cards): Ganzel (Vg/Vg-Ex) and Pickering (trimmed). 4) Hindu - Brown (2 cards): Brown/Cubs (HOF, Fr) and Ganley (Vg/Vg-Ex). 5) American Beauty - 460 Series (3 cards): Crandall/cap (Vg-Ex), Pfeffer (Vg-Ex), and Sheckard/glove (Fr-Gd). 6) Tolstoi (2 cards): Byrne (slight trim) and Konetchy/glove near ground (slight trim). 7) El Principe De Gales (3 cards): Criger (trimmed), Konetchy/glove above head (Vg/Vg-Ex), and Tinker/bat on (slight trim). 8) American Beauty - 350 - No Frame (5 cards): Conroy/bat (Vg), Lake/no ball (Gd), Magee/bat (slight trim), Overall/face level (Gd), and Wiltse (trimmed). 9) American Beauty - 350 - Frame (30 cards): Becker (Vg), Carrigan (Fr), Casey (Fr), Clymer (Gd), Davidson (slight trim), Delehanty (Gd), Dunn (Vg), Freeman (Fr-Gd), Grimshaw (Vg-Ex), Hallman (Gd), Hayden (Fr), Hulswitt (slight trim), Jackson (slight trim), Knabe (Pr), Lennox (slight trim), Livingstone (Fr), McBride (Gd), Merritt (Gd), Milligan (slight trim), Mitchell (Vg-Ex), Moran/Providence (Gd-Vg), Moran/Chi.
