1911 T201 Mecca Double Folders Ty Cobb/Sam Crawford
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $711.00
Graded EX 5 by PSA. Presented is an extraordinarily sharp, ultra high-grade example of the key card from the classic T201 Mecca Double Folders set, featuring Hall of Famers Ty Cobb and Sam Crawford of the Detroit Tigers. T201 Double Folders are one of the most condition-sensitive of all tobacco-card issues. The thin stock on which they are printed makes them especially susceptible to soft corners as well as to very slight wrinkles, creases, and edge wear. These cards were designed to be played with, folded up and down, so it is not surprising that normal handling would result in few truly high-grade examples surviving. This is a remarkably high grade example of the key card in the set. It is bright and clean, with fresh colors, not a hint of creasing anywhere, beautifully centered, and with only the slightest hint of light wear on the corners (predominately the lower right). PSA grades T201s very harshly, and these cards tend to look a lot better in person than the assigned grades suggest. We grade this card slightly higher. This is a magnificent example that would be a worthy addition to any high-grade T201, Ty Cobb, or classic prewar Hall of Fame card collection. SMR value for the assigned grade is $950. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $711.00
