Collection of four different cards from the T206 White Border series, each professionally graded and encapsulated by SGC (2) or GAI (2) and featuring a desirable American Beauty 350 tobacco advertisement on the reverse (except for one 460 series as noted). American Beauty is a very scarce back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and seen far less often than standard Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising backs. This collection consists of the following: Downey/batting (EX+ 70), Hummel (GAI EX+ 5.5, American Beauty 460), Konetchy/glove near ground (VG 40), and Street/catching (GAI EX-MT+ 6.5). Each card is bright, crisp, and clean, with particularly attractive advertising reverses. (Note: American Beauty back T205 and T206 cards were all issued slightly narrower than cards with other advertising backs, likely due to the width of the company's cigarette packages.) This is a very attractive collection of four different cards, each featuring the unusual and desirable American Beauty advertising back. Total: 4 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
