Collection of twenty-nine different cards from the desirable T206 White Border Southern Leaguer subset, representing slightly more than half of the forty-eight card set. Each card is professionally graded and encapsulated by SGC. The Southern Leaguers have always been appreciated for their scarcity and as a popular subset to the T206 series. They have also always been listed at a significant premium in relation to regular cards in the set. All cards in the offered collection have Piedmont advertising backs (except for six Old Mill as noted). SGC Grading Composite: One EX+ 70: Helm - Columbus (Old Mill). Three VG/EX+ 55: M. Miller - Dallas, Otey - Norfolk, and Westlake - Danville (Old Mill). Two VG/EX 50: Breitenstein - New Orleans, and Orth - Lynchburg. One VG+ 45: F. White - Houston. Four VG 40: Foster - Charleston, B. Hart - Little Rock, Lafitte - Macon, and Thebo - Waco. Five GOOD+ 35: Hooker - Lynchburg (Old Mill), Lipe - Richmond, Perdue - Nashville, Reagan - New Orleans, and Revelle - Richmond (Old Mill). Eight GOOD 30: Bastian - San Antonio, Bernhard - Nashville, Cranston - Memphis, J. Hart - Montgomery, D. Jordan - Atlanta (Old Mill), King - Danville, Molesworth - Birmingham, and Seitz - Norfolk. One FAIR 20: Persons - Montgomery. Two POOR 10: Lentz - Little Rock, and Stark - San Antonio. Two Authentic: McCauley - Portsmouth, and Rockenfeld - Montgomery (Old Mill). The scarcity of the Southern Leaguers has always made putting together a complete T206 set particularly difficult. While the condition of this collection spans several grades, it is an overall very attractive group of Southern Leaguers that will provide an outstanding foundation for the assembly of a complete subset. The equivalent SMR value in the assigned grades (factoring in the eleven half-grades at the lower whole-grade level and excluding the two Authentic) is $2,834. Total: 29 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+.
