Presented is a collection of eight different cards from the classic T206 White Border series, comprised exclusively of cards featuring a desirable Sovereign advertising reverse. Each card is graded and encapsulated by PSA. Sovereign is a very scarce back, not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and seen far less often than the standard Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising backs. This collection consists of the following: Three EX-MT 6: Butler (Sovereign 350), Hummel (Sovereign 460), and J. Sweeney (Sovereign 350). Five EX 5: J. Barry (Sovereign 350), Dahlen/Boston (Sovereign 150), J. Doyle/N.Y., hands above head (Sovereign 350), Manning/pitching (Sovereign 350), and Parent (Sovereign 350). This is a very attractive collection of T206 Sovereign backs, with crisp images and bold colors. All of the important Sovereign backs are clean and boldly printed. A small but desirable collection of cards featuring this unusual advertising reverse. The total SMR value in the assigned grades (with no premium assigned for the scarce back) is $1,525. Total: 8 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000+.
