The Minor Leaguers have always been appreciated for their rarity and unique design, and are a popular subset to the T205 series. They have also always been listed at a significant premium in relation to regular cards in the set. Presented is a complete set of all twelve scarce T205 Minor Leaguers, highlighted by Hall of Famer Jimmy Collins, each graded and encapsulated by PSA (five cards) or SGC (seven cards). Five cards are EX and seven are graded VG/EX. The PSA grades are as follows: Three EX 5: Cady, Merritt, and Phelan. Two VG-EX 4: Batch and Collins (HOF). The SGC grades are as follows: Two EX 60: Hanford and McAllister. Five VG/EX 50: Adkins, Dunn, Frick, Lee, and Nee. Each card is bright and crisp, with deep, vibrant colors, and perfect registration. Eleven have Hassan advertisements on the reverses; Batch has a Polar Bear back. The scarcity of the Minor Leaguers has always made putting together a complete T205 set particularly difficult. This is an extremely impressive, rarely offered complete collection of Minor Leaguers, very high quality across the board, with most cards having an appearance superior to their technically accurate assigned grades. Total 12 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000.
