Presented is a collection of eight different cards from the classic T206 White Border series, composed exclusively of Hall of Famers in portrait poses, and each featuring a desirable Sovereign 350 advertising reverse (except for one 150 series as noted). Each card is professionally graded and encapsulated SGC. Sovereign is a scarce back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and seen far less often than the standard Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising backs. The "portrait poses" are a very distinctive subset of T206, as are T206 Hall of Famers, making this collection a particularly striking assemblage of high-grade T206 Hall of Famers. This collection consists of the following: Beckley (VG/EX 50), Bresnahan (VG/EX 50), Brown (VG/EX 50), Evers (VG/EX 50, 150 series), Jennings (EX 60), Wallace (VG/EX 50), Walsh (EX 60), and Willis (EX+ 70). All are bright, crisp, and clean. This is a very attractive collection of cards, comprised exclusively of Hall of Famers with the desirable Sovereign advertising back from the legendary T206 set. These cards have been chosen from a large collection of T206s, which we have organized by theme and condition. This is an outstanding collection of eight high-quality T206 Hall of Famers! The equivalent SMR value in the assigned grades (factoring in the one half grade at the lower whole-grade level) is $2,430. Total: 8 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+.
