Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! Exceptional high-grade example of Mayberry (Danville) from the 1910 T209 Contentnea Cigarettes "Photo Series." The card is crisp and clean, with a flawless image, outstanding centering, and four strong corners. The reverse is clean and boldly printed. The T209 "Photo Series" set is comprised of 224 different players from the Virginia League, Carolina Association, and Eastern League. T209 Contentnea "Photo Series" is one of the rarest and (in large part because of its rarity) most overlooked of all tobacco-card issues. This is a superb example, in far better condition than normally encountered (T209s were printed on a very poor-quality paper stock), and one that would be an exceptional addition to any T209 set or type-card collection. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
