Exceptional collection of 189 different cards (plus three duplicates for a total of 192 cards) from the T206 White Border series, highlighted by seventeen Hall of Famers. The offered collection represents 36% of a complete set! All cards have Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising reverses except for fifteen Old Mill and fourteen Polar Bear. Condition of the group is 14% Vg (including a couple Vg-Ex), 40% Fr to Gd, and 46% lesser. Keys: Bresnahan/with bat (HOF, Pr), Bresnahan/portrait (HOF, Pr-Fr), Brown/portrait (HOF, Fr), Brown/Chicago on shirt (HOF, Pr-Fr), Brown/Cubs on shirt (HOF, Pr), Chase/throwing, dark cap (Polar Bear, Pr), Chesbro (HOF, Pr), Cicotte (Vg), Gandil (Gd+), Griffith/portrait (HOF, miscut top edge, otherwise Pr), Griffith/with bat (Fr), Huggins/portrait (HOF, Gd+), Jennings/one hand showing (HOF, Vg), Jennings/portrait (HOF, Gd+), Lajoie/portrait (HOF, Pr), Marquard/hands at thighs (Fr), McGraw/glove at hip (HOF, Gd+), McGraw/portrait no cap (HOF, Pr), Smith/Chicago and Boston (Gd+), Walsh (Fr), and Willis (Fr). There are many cards within this grouping that present better than the assigned grade but are accurately downgraded due to condition issues on the reverse. T206s perhaps more so than any other vintage issue are extremely popular in all grades. This is an ideal collection to serve as the foundation for the assembly of a low- to midgrade complete set of T206, the most popular and classic set of the 1910 era. Total: 192 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000++.
