Substantial collection of thirty-three different cards plus three duplicates from the T202 Hassan Triple Folder set, each graded and encapsulated by SGC. The beautiful lithography, the great number of stars represented, and the unique design of T202 Hassan Triple Folders combine to make it one of the most highly regarded of all baseball-card sets of the era. T202s are unnumbered, so in the following condition composite, identifying card numbers are referenced from the numbers provided by the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards checklist. This lot consists of the following: #1 Wallace/LaPorte (HOF, VG/EX 50), 4 Barger/Bergen (VG/EX 50), 8 Collins/Baker (HOF, POOR 10), 10 Birmingham/Turner (POOR 10), two 20 Shean/Chance (HOF, VG 40 and POOR 10), 21 Wolter/Chase (Authentic), 24 Egan/Mitchell (EX+ 70), 27 Gibson/Clarke (HOF, GOOD 30), 28 Leifield/Gibson (POOR 10), 31 Bender/Thomas (HOF, VG+ 45), 33 Stovall/Ball (FAIR 20), two 35 White/Payne (VG/EX+ 55 and VG 40), 40 Murphy/Collins (HOF, VG 40), 47 Meyers/Mathewson (HOF, FAIR 20), 48 Gibson/Camnitz (VG 40), 50 Leach/Wilson (VG/EX 50), 54 Lobert/Dooin (FAIR 20), 59 Speaker/Engle (HOF, POOR 10), 69 Hoblitzell/Grant (VG 40), 72 Lennox/Tinker (HOF, VG 40), 75 Tannehill/Lord (Lionel Carter Collection, GOOD 30), 76 Stahl/Cicotte (Black Sox, FAIR 20), 77 Jones/Delehanty (GOOD 30), 79 Bresnahan/McGraw (HOF, FAIR 20), 90 Kling/Young (HOF, POOR 10), 94 Lord/Tannehill (FAIR 20), 98 Bescher/Bates (VG/EX 50), 99 Lord/Oldring (VG 40), 109 Sheckard/Schulte (VG 40), two 111 Groom/Gray (VG/EX 50 and FAIR 20), 114 Raymond/Latham (POOR 10), 116 Brown/Graham (HOF, FAIR 20), and 119 Hoblitzel/Egan (FAIR 20). This is an outstanding collection, with several notable highlights, from this classic issue, which all alone could serve as the foundation for the assembly of a complete set, or would make outstanding additions to any complete set in the process of assembly. The equivalent SMR value in the assigned grades (factoring in the half-grades at the lower whole-grade level and excluding the one Authentic) is $2,434. Total: 36 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++.
