Presented is a complete set of all fifty cards comprising the T201 Mecca Double Folders set. Eleven cards are Ex, twenty-two range from Vg to Vg-Ex/Ex, eleven range from Gd to Gd-Vg, and six lesser. This is an extremely attractive mid-grade complete set of this classic tobacco issue. Most cards appear Ex at a glance and have been downgraded due to the minor flaws which are so common to the issue. The thin stock makes them especially susceptible to very light corner rounding and light paper wrinkles. Keys: Baker/Collins (Gd), Bender/Oldring (Vg/Vg-Ex), Bergen/Wheat (Gd-Vg), Bresnahan/Huggins (Gd), Bridwell/Mathewson (Gd), Brown/Hofman (Fr), Byrne/Clarke (Ex), Chance/Evers (Vg/Vg-Ex), Chase/Sweeney (Ex), Cicotte/Thoney (Ex), Cobb/Crawford (Fr), Dougherty/Lord (Vg), Falkenberg/Lajoie (Vg), Gardner/Speaker (Gd), Jennings/Summers (Gd-Vg), Johnson/Street (Vg-Ex), Lake/Wallace (Gd), McCarty/McGinnity (Ex), and Payne/Walsh (Vg-Ex). Though not high-grade by PSA standards, this set is far above average for Mecca Double Folders, with eye-appeal far better than suggested by the technically accurate grades listed above. This is a bright, clean, and (with few exceptions) very consistent complete set of one of the era's most classic tobacco issues. Because there are two players on each card, the fifty-card set features one hundred different players, including twenty Hall of Famers. From the Joe Pelaez Collection. Total: 50 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,133
