Collection of eight different T206 cards, including Hall of Famer John McGraw, featuring the rare red Hindu advertisement on the reverse. This group was part of a much larger original-owner 1910-era tobacco- and candy-card collection, the balance of which is being offered as a separate lot in this auction. When we noticed the collection included eight cards with red "Hindu" backs, we thought many collectors would very much appreciate having these cards separated and offered as their own lot. We submitted each card to SGC to be graded and encapsulated. The collection consists of the following: Crandall/cap (FAIR 20), Devore (FAIR 20), Kleinow/Boston (GOOD 30), McGraw/glove (HOF, GOOD 30), Pfeffer (FAIR 20), two Sheckard/glove (VG 40 and POOR 10), and Stahl/glove (VG 40). Total 8 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $10,575
