Collection of forty-six different T206 White Border tobacco cards, each graded and encapsulated by SGC, composed exclusively of minor leaguers. All have Polar Bear advertising backs. Polar Bears are an especially popular advertising back with collectors because of the distinct blue background and crisp white printing. This lot consists of the following: VG/EX+ 55 (1 card): Barry/Milwaukee. VG/EX 50 (34 cards): Abbott, Armbuster, Barger, Burchell, Carr, Chappelle, Clancy, Clymer, Delahanty/Louisville, Dessau, Dorner, Freeman, Ganzel, Grimshaw, Hinchman/Toledo, Jackson, Kruger, McGann, Merritt (Lionel Carter Collection), Milligan, Moeller, Nattress, O'Neil, Pickering, Puttman, Randall, Ritter, Rudolph, Schirm, Schlafly, Shannon, Sharpe, Slagle, and Young/Minneapolis. VG 40 (11 cards): Adkins, Anderson, Blackburne, Brashear, Clark, Hayden, Lavender, Quillen, Shaw, Thielman, and White/Buffalo. This is a substantial collection of T206 Polar Bear backs, which represents eighteen percent of a complete subset. The equivalent SMR value in the assigned grades (factoring the one half-grade at the lower whole-grade level) is $3,087. Total: 46 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+.
