Collection of sixteen different 1911 T201 Mecca Double Folders, highlighted by several Hall of Famers, including Frank Chance, Eddie Collins, Johnny Evers, Nap Lajoie, and Tris Speaker. This collection consists of the following: Bender/Oldring (HOF, Fr), Brown/Hofman (HOF, Gd), Collins/Baker (HOF, Gd), Downs/Odwell (Gd), Evers/Chance (HOF, Gd), Killian/Fitzpatrick (altered with tape, otherwise Fr), Lajoie/Falkenberg (HOF, Gd), Lake/Wallace (HOF, Gd), Lobert/Moore (Vg), Lush/Hauser (Vg-Ex), Mattern/Graham (Gd), McBride/Elberfeld (Fr), Speaker/Gardner (HOF, Gd), Summers/Jennings (HOF, Vg-Ex), Thomas/Coombs (Fr), and Titus/Dooin (off-center, otherwise Vg). These cards are naturally prone to wear and rarely found in extremely high grade. As is usually the case with T201s, several cards have been downgraded due to mostly very minor creases and corner wear natural to the issue, and many have a far superior appearance than suggested by their technically accurate grades. T201s are very attractive, substantial, and represent one of the best values of all 1910-era baseball tobacco issues. Total: 16 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
