Collection of 135 T206 White Borders (114 different), including an extremely impressive array of Hall of Famers, among them Ty Cobb, Christy Mathewson, Nap Lajoie, Cy Young, and Tris Speaker. 42% are Vg or better, 32% grade Gd, and 26% range from Pr to Fr (with a few slight trim). Six cards are graded and encapsulated by SGC (all submitted by REA). Keys: Baker (Pr), Bender/trees (Pr), Bender/no trees (Gd/Vg), Bender/port. (Pr), Brown/Chicago (Pr), two Chase/blue (Gd/Vg and Fr), two Chase/dark cap (both Vg), Chase/trophy (Fr), Chance/batting (SGC EX+ 70), Chance/yellow (Vg), Ty Cobb/green (Pr), Collins/Minn.

This T206 collection is a very attractive and very substantial group, with twenty-seven Hall of Fame cards included, representing a great start to a low- to medium-grade complete set of T206, the most popular and classic set of the era. Backs are almost all Sweet Caporal and Piedmont, but there are fifteen Polar Bear and one American Beauty. The equivalent SMR value for just the six SGC-graded cards (with each half-grade calculated at the lower whole-grade level) is $1,745. Total: 135 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $2,000++.
