1912 T207 Brown Background SGC-Highest Graded Collection! (3)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,525

Important Addendum: In our published catalog description for this lot, the SGC Population Report information provided was in part not accurate. The printed catalog description states that the SGC NM 84 of Ragan is the highest SGC graded T207 of all T207s, and the only NM 84 T207 ever graded by SGC. This is an error. Thirty-one T207s have been graded NM 84 and seven T207s have been graded NM+ 86 (out of a total of 4,676 T207s graded by SGC to date). The T207 Ragan in this lot is the only NM 84 and the highest SGC graded T207 example of Ragan, not of all T207s.

Collection of three extremely high-grade rarities from the 1912 T207 Brown Background set, all graded and encapsulated by SGC (all three cards submitted by REA): 1) Don Carlos Ragan. Graded NM 84 by SGC. Highest-graded example by SGC! Well centered, with an essentially flawless surface, and with virtually perfect corners. Striking red Cycle Cigarettes advertisement on the back. This is an unbelievably strong example of one of the key rare cards in the condition-sensitive T207 set. 2) Russell Blackburne. Graded EX+ 70 by SGC. Highest-graded example by SGC! Bright and clean, with a hint of light even wear to the corners, and centered slightly towards the top right (approximately 40/60). Broadleaf Cigarettes back. 3) Eugene Woodburn. Graded EX 60 by SGC. Bright and clean, with a hint of light wear to the corners (predominately the upper left), and centered to the right (approximately 75/25). Broadleaf Cigarettes back. T207 Brown Backgrounds are particularly challenging to collect due to the many rarities included in the set. This is a very sharp-looking, ultra high-grade collection of three significant T207 rarities. Total 3 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++. SOLD FOR $3,525
