1909-1911 T206 White Border PSA VG-EX 4 Letters M-Z Collection (65)
Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $5,628.75
Collection of sixty-five T206 White Border tobacco cards, each encapsulated and graded VG-EX 4 (except six VG-EX+ 4.5) and highlighted by the presence of two Hall of Famers and four Southern Leaguers. All cards are PSA graded and have Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising backs unless otherwise noted. This is part of a larger collection of T206 cards which we have broken down into several smaller lots by condition. Naturally, this is an extraordinarily consistent collection in terms of condition, and represents an exceptional opportunity to acquire a very substantial group of sixty-five different classic T206 cards in an extremely desirable and consistent grade. All of these cards feature players with last names beginning with "M" through "Z." The collection consists of the following: McCormick (El Principe de Gales, SGC VG/EX 50), McElveen, McGinley, H. McIntyre/Brooklyn & Chicago, M. McIntyre, McQuillan/ball in hand, McQuillan/with bat, Merkle/throwing (SGC VG/EX 50), M. Miller (Southern Leaguer), Moeller, Mowrey, Mullin/with bat, Needham, Nicholls/hands on knees, O'Brien (VG-EX+ 4.5), O'Leary/portrait, Oberlin, Overall/portrait (MK), Owen, Parent, Pastorius (SGC VG/EX 50), Payne (VG-EX+ 4.5), Perdue (Southern Leaguer), Pfeffer (SGC VG/EX 50), Phelps, Pickering, Purtell, Putman, Rhoades/hands at chest, Rhodes, Rossman (VG-EX+ 4.5), Rucker/throwing, Schmidt/portrait, Schmidt/throwing (MK), Schulte/back view, Scott, Seymour/portrait (Polar Bear), Shannon (VG-EX+ 4.5), Shipke, C.

White (Southern Leaguer), Willetts, Williams, Willis/portrait (HOF, MK), Wilson, Wiltse/pitching (VG-EX+ 4.5), Wiltse/portrait no cap, Wright (SGC VG/EX 50), and I. Young. Bright and crisp extremely attractive collection, all in uniform grade, from the most popular and classic set of the era. This is a very substantial group, and a tremendous start to a T206 set or the upgrading of a set already in progress. The equivalent total SMR value for the assigned grades (factoring the six half-grades in at the VG-EX level and not including the three qualified cards, one of which is a HOFer) is $5,625. Total: 65 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $4,000+. SOLD FOR $5,628.75
