Extraordinary ultra high-grade partial set of 115 different T207 Brown Background cards, all graded and encapsulated by PSA. This is a very special group. The #1 T207 Master Set on the PSA Registry has been consigned to this auction and is presented in twenty-nine lots. This T207 set is by far the finest set to ever be assembled in the history of collecting. Nothing else even comes close! Because there were so many high value cards in the set, we chose to break it down into twenty-nine lots, presenting the most valuable cards individually and in groups by condition. This collection of 115 different cards from this miracle set is the largest group from the set. This lot represents over one-half of the finest T207 set in the universe! Obviously, it also represents the foundation for the assembly of the future finest set of T207 Brown Background cards in the world. Most of the cards in this collection are the highest-graded examples for that respective player. The PSA grades are as follows: Fifty-one NM 7: Barger, Bradley, Byrne, Camnitz, Coulson, Crandall, Danforth, Devore, Dooin, Doyle, Erwin (OC), Evans (OC), Ferry, Gainor, Gardner, Golden, Graney, Hageman, Henry, Higgins, Kaler (OC), Knabe, Latham, Leach, Leifeld, Lively, Marsans, McIntire, McLean, Miller (Pitt.), Moran, Morgan (Phila.), Needham, Nunamaker, Oakes (OC), Oldring, Paskert, Reulbach, Scanlon, Schulte, Smith (St. Louis), Spratt, Stack, Steele, Stovall, Strunk, Sullivan, Tooley (OC), Wagner, Walker, and Wolverton. Forty-six EX-MT 6: Ainsmith, Becker, Bescher, Clarke, Cole, Covington, Daniels, Delehanty, Ellis, Engle, Fletcher, Fromme, Gowdy (OC), Hamilton, Harmon, Hogan, Kirke (Broadleaf back), Kling, Lapp, D. Lewis, Lord (Phila.), McBride, McIntyre, Mitchell (Clev.), Morgan (Wash.), O'Brien, Olson, O'Toole, Rucker, Schaefer, Severoid, Simon, Smith (Cinn.), Steinfeldt, Street, Thomas, Turner, Vaughn, Warhop, Wilie, Williams, Wilson (NY), Wiltse, Wingo, Yerkes, and Zeider. Twelve EX 5: Ball, Callahan, Carrigan, Collins, Devlin, Easterly, Hall, Hallinan, Mitchell (Cinn.), Perdue, Scott, and Tannehill. Three VG-EX 4: Drake, George, and Graham. One VG 3: Schardt. Two GOOD 2: Lord and Milan. A quick look at the PSA population report shows there are 189 T207s in total graded NM 7 by PSA (including qualified cards), and this collection includes 51 (27%) of the NM 7 examples listed on the PSA population report. As previously noted, most of the cards in this collection are the highest-graded examples for that respective player. This is an extraordinary high-grade collection of one of card collecting's most classic tobacco-card issues. The collection represents a full 58% of the entire set, and is an ideal foundation for the building of a beautiful entirely PSA-graded T207 set, of which very few have ever been assembled. The SMR value for this group (not including the six qualified cards) is $40,770. Total 115 cards. Reserve $10,000. Estimate $25,000+. SOLD FOR $38,188
