Presented is a very interesting collection of thirty-eight different T206 tobacco cards, all with slightly scarce backs. Nine different advertising backs are represented, including “American Beauty,” “Hindu,” "Sovereign," and “Tolstoi.” Each card has been graded and encapsulated by SGC. This group includes three Hall of Famers (Brown, Crawford, and Waddell). The collection consists of the following in the order of scarcity (with the order of rarity provided by the “T206 Resource” website): 1) Hindu - Brown (1 cards): White/portrait (VG 40). 2) Sovereign 460 (4 cards): Crandall/cap (GOOD+ 35), Lake/ball in hand (POOR 10), Needham (POOR 10), and Schlei/portrait (FAIR 20). 3) Tolstoi (2 cards): Phillippe (FAIR 20) and Stovall/batting (VG/EX 50). 4) American Beauty 350 - Frame (1 card): Knight/portrait (GOOD 30). 5) Sovereign 350 - Apple Green (3 cards): Brown/Chicago (HOF, VG 40), Doolan/batting (GOOD 30), and Murphy/batting (GOOD+ 35). 6) Cycle 350 (1 card): Dorner (VG+ 45). 7) Sovereign 150 (2 cards): Covaleski (VG 40) and Lindaman (FAIR 20). 8) Polar Bear (9 cards): Bescher/hands in air (FAIR 20), Burke (FAIR 20), Chase/trophy (GOOD 30), Congalton (FAIR 20), Crawford/bat (HOF, FAIR 20), Doyle/portrait (POOR 10), Dygert (POOR 10), Hallman (POOR 10), and Hoffman (FAIR 20). 9) Sovereign 350 - Forest Green (15 cards): Carr (GOOD+ 35), Elberfeld/NY, portrait (VG+ 45), Hoblitzell (VG 40, Lionel Carter Collection), Jackson (VG 40), Jones/portrait (VG 40), Krause/portrait (FAIR 20), Nicholls/hands on knees (GOOD 30), O'Leary/portrait (VG 40), Phelan (VG 40), Quillen (FAIR 20), Randall (POOR 10), Sheckard/no glove (VG+ 45), Stahl/no glove (VG 40), Sweeney (GOOD 30), and Waddell/portrait (HOF, VG 40). This is a strong T206 group that is especially noteworthy for their desirable and different advertising backs! The equivalent SMR value in the assigned grades is $1,386 with no premium assigned for the scarcer backs (factoring the half-grades at the lower whole-grade level). Total: 38 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
