1910 to 1933 Type-Card Collection (50)

Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $2,370

Presented is a collection of fifty different cards spanning the years 1910 to 1933 from various caramel, candy, and strip-card issues. These cards actually represent a portion of a much larger, very advanced type-card collection that was carefully assembled by a dedicated collector over a period of many years before he decided to consign them to this auction. Other type-card groupings from this same collection (including 1910-era tobacco and caramel issues) are presented as separate lots within this auction. The offered collection of fifty cards is highlighted by several Hall of Famers, such as John McGraw, George Sisler, and Burleigh Grimes, as well as many unusual issues, including a very advanced advertising-back sampling from the M101-4/5 series.
