Collection of forty-four assorted 1912 T202 Triple Folders includes forty-one different cards plus three duplicates. The collection includes two Ty Cobbs, two Christy Mathewsons, plus ten additional Hall of Famers. These cards are part of a very substantial totally untouched collection of 1910-era candy and tobacco cards consigned to this auction (all cards from this collection appear in the Internet-only section of the auction), which was saved for decades by the family of the original owner. We have selected eight T202 Hassan Triple Folders to be graded and encapsulated by SGC (submitted by REA). The eight SGC-graded cards range in grade from VG to EX/NM (two cards graded EX/NM 80 including Mathewson and card with Tinker/Evers end panels, two cards graded EX 60, and four graded VG 40 including two Cobbs); the balance of the cards range from Good to Excellent as detailed in the condition composite. In the following condition composite, identifying card numbers are referenced from the numbers provided by the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards checklist. SGC Condition Report (8 cards): #3 Cobb/O'Leary (HOF, VG 40), 10 Birmingham/Turner (VG 40), 14 Oakes/Bresnahan (HOF, EX 60), 31 Bender/Thomas (HOF, VG 40), 47 Mathewson/Meyers (HOF, EX/NM 80), 61 Evers/Chance (HOF, EX/NM 80), 68 Cobb/Moriarity (HOF, VG 40), and 127 Marquard/Meyers (HOF, EX 60). Condition composite of the balance (36 cards): Vg-Ex to Ex (3 cards): #70 McConnell/McIntyre, 71 Suggs/McLean, and 103 Barger/Bergen. Vg (17 cards): #1 LaPorte/Wallace (HOF), 5 Bergen/Rucker, 6 Blair/Quinn, 7 Mullin/Stanage, 24 Egan/Mitchell, 34 Payne/Walsh (HOF), two 35 Payne/White, 45 Devlin (Rustlers)/Mathewson (HOF), 48 Camnitz/Gibson, 51 Dooin/Magee, 53 Dooin/Doolan, 55 Dooin/Titus, 73 Dahlen/Scanlan, 106 Speaker/Wood (HOF), 121 Fromme/McLean, and 124 Crandall/Meyers. Gd to Gd-Vg (16 cards): #6 Blair/Quinn, 19 Archer/Rowan, 41 Stanage/Summers, 50 Leach/Wilson, 52 Gibson/Phillippe, 55 Dooin/Titus, 72 Lennox/Tinker (HOF), 80 Crandall/Meyers, 84 Jennings/McGraw (HOF), 86 Murray/Snodgrass, 108 Austin/Stovall, 109 Schulte/Sheckard, 110 Huggins/Evans (HOF), 111 Gray/Groom, 114 Latham/Raymond, and 118 Krause/Thomas. This is a very attractive collection, with most cards (as is often the case with T202s) appearing far superior to their technically accurate assigned grades. This is an outstanding foundation for the assembling of a beautiful set of T202 Hassan Triple Folders, arguably the most interesting and beautiful baseball tobacco issue ever produced. The equivalent SMR value for the just the eight SGC-graded cards (not including the thirty-six ungraded cards) is $4,135. Total 44 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000+. SOLD FOR $4,406
