This is a remarkable T206 Southern Leaguer set, both due to the across-the-board high level of condition of every single card, and the remarkable consistency of the set, with all forty-eight cards grading PSA EX 5 or PSA EX+ 5.5. The Southern Leaguers have always been appreciated for their scarcity and as a popular subset to the T206 series. They have also always been listed at a significant premium in relation to regular cards in the set. The complete set of all forty-eight scarce T206 Southern Leaguers have been assembled by our consignor over a period of years with great care, with each card graded and encapsulated EX 5 (except four EX+ 5.5 as noted) by PSA. All have either Piedmont (29) or Old Mill (19) advertising on the reverse. The collection is comprised of the following: Bastian - San Antonio, Bay - Nashville (Old Mill back), Bernhard - Nashville (Old Mill back), Breitenstein - New Orleans, Carey - Memphis, Coles - Augusta (Old Mill back), Cranston - Memphis (Old Mill back), Ellam - Nashville, Foster - Charleston (EX+ 5.5, Old Mill back), Fritz - New Orleans (EX+ 5.5), Greminger - Montgomery, Guiheen - Portsmouth, B. Hart - Little Rock (Old Mill back), J. Hart - Montgomery (EX+ 5.5), Helm - Columbus (Old Mill back), Hickman - Mobile (EX+ 5.5, Old Mill back), Hooker - Lynchburg (Old Mill back), Howard - Savannah, Jordan - Atlanta (Old Mill back), Kiernan - Columbia, King - Danville, Lafitte - Macon, Lentz - Little Rock, Lipe - Richmond (Old Mill back), Manion - Columbia (Old Mill back), McCauley - Portsmouth (Old Mill back), Miller - Dallas, Molesworth - Birmingham, Mullaney - Jacksonville, Orth - Lynchburg (Old Mill back), Otey - Norfolk (Old Mill back), Paige - Charleston, Perdue - Nashville, Persons - Montgomery, Reagan - New Orleans, Revelle - Richmond (Old Mill back), Rockenfeld - Montgomery, Ryan - Roanoke, Seitz - Norfolk, Shaughnessy - Roanoke (Old Mill back), Smith - Shreveport, Smith - Atlanta (Old Mill back), Stark - San Antonio, Thebo - Waco, Thornton - Mobile, Violat - Jacksonville (Old Mill back), Westlake - Danville, and White - Houston. The scarcity of the Southern Leaguers has always made putting together a complete T206 set particularly difficult. The SMR value for the group is $13,920. Total: 48 cards. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000/$10,000+. SOLD FOR $21,330
