Collection of seventy-four T206 White Border tobacco cards (forty-two different), highlighted by Hall of Famers Christy Mathewson, Walter Johnson, and Tris Speaker. All have Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising backs (except for one Sovereign as noted). Condition is 27% Gd (including three Vg), 31% Fr, and 42% Pr to Pr-Fr (including three trimmed and one that measures small). Eight cards are graded and encapsulated by SGC (except for one PSA as noted). Keys: Chase/blue (FAIR 20), three Chase/pink (GOOD+ 35 and two Pr), three Dahlen/Boston (GOOD+ 35, PSA FR 1.5, and Fr), Gandil (Black Sox, paper loss front and back, Pr), Johnson/portrait (Sovereign, GOOD 30), Mathewson/portrait (FAIR 20), Speaker (POOR 10), and Street/portrait (GOOD 2). This is a neat group of cards from “the olden days,” with some cards a little rough but still very collectable, and ideal for the collector who does not want to spend a fortune, buts wants real, original circa 1910 tobacco cards which capture the spirit of the history of the game and collecting. Total: 74 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000+.
