1911 T208 Cullivan's Fireside Jimmy Dygert
Starting Bid - $800, Sold For - $4,700
Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Exceptionally high-grade T208 Fireside Tobacco card of pitcher Jimmy Dygert of the Philadelphia Athletics. This is one of four T208s that were among the highlights of a small but remarkable original-owner collection that included forty-nine T204 Ramlys, four T208 Firesides, fifty T206s, and sixty T205s, all new to the organized collecting world and presented in a total of sixteen lots in this auction. This is a very strong sample card from this extremely rare tobacco issue, with an ideal boldly printed Fireside advertising reverse. The offered example has a flawless image set against a striking blue background, light wear to the corners, no creases, and is perfectly centered with a very slight natural diamond cut. This exceptional high-grade example appears Excellent but has been downgraded by SGC due to a small chip of paper loss along the bottom edge of the reverse. This is a very high-quality example from the legendary and elusive T208 series. Reserve $800. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $4,700
