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. Presented is a complete set of all forty-eight scarce T206 Southern Leaguers, each graded and encapsulated by SGC. This is an exceptional high-quality set consisting of one EX+ 70, eleven EX 60, two VG/EX+ 55, and thirty-four VG/EX 50. Thirty-one cards have Piedmont advertising backs and seventeen have Old Mill advertising backs.
