Collection of five different 1910 T211 Red Sun Cigarettes cards, each graded and encapsulated by SGC (submitted by REA). The T211 set is composed of seventy-five different players from the Southern Association. T211 Red Sun is one of the rarest and (in large part because of its rarity) most overlooked of all tobacco-card issues. Red Sun cards share the same designs as those in the eighth series of the 1910 T210 Old Mill set, which are universally recognized as among the rarest cards in the T210 set. The offered cards are all in extremely high grade for T211 Red Suns, grading either VG/EX+ 55, EX 60, or EX/NM 80 (except one SGC Authentic as noted). Of the nearly 400 cards from this series evaluated by SGC to date, less than ten percent have graded EX or better (with only one higher than EX/NM). This collection consists of the following: Bartley (EX 60, 1 of 1, highest graded), Chappelle (Authentic, trimmed), Kerwin (EX/NM 80, 1 of 1, highest graded), Molesworth (VG/EX+ 55, 1 of 1, one higher), and Seabough (EX 60, 1 of 1, highest graded). T211 Red Sun cards also have a very distinctive design with striking player poses, and a very attractive and unique advertising back design. This is an extremely desirable sampling of five ultra-high-grade cards from this rare and extremely desirable 1910-era tobacco-card set. Total: 5 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++.
