Presented is a collection of twelve different cards from the classic T206 White Border series, composed exclusively of cards featuring a desirable Sovereign advertising reverse. Each card is graded and encapsulated by SGC (except for one PSA as noted). Sovereign is a scarce back, 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. This collection consists of the following: Birmingham (EX+ 70, 350 series), Butler (PSA EX 5 [MK], 350 series), Chase/white cap (VG/EX+ 55, 150 series), Devore (EX 60, 460 series), Ferris (EX 60, 350 series), Kling (EX 60, 150 series), Knight/bat (EX 60, 350 series), Leifield/batting (EX+ 70, 350 series), McIntyre/Bklyn & Chicago (GOOD+ 35, 350 series), Seymour/batting (EX+ 70, 350 series), Stahl/no glove (EX+ 70, 350 series), and Stovall/portrait (EX+ 70, 350 series). This is a very attractive collection of T206 Sovereign backs, with crisp images and bold colors. Almost all of the important Sovereign backs are clean and boldly printed. The equivalent SMR value in the assigned grades (factoring in the half-grades at the lower whole-grade level) is $1,442 (not including the one qualified card) and without any premium assigned to the unusual Sovereign advertising backs. Total: 12 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
