Presented is a collection of seven different cards from the classic T206 White Border series, composed of five Hall of Famers, one "Black Sox" member, and a prominent star, and each featuring a desirable Sovereign advertising reverse. Entirely graded and encapsulated by SGC. Sovereign is a scarce back, certainly 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: Chase/white cap (VG/EX 50, 150 series), Duffy (VG/EX 50, 460 series), Flick (VG/EX 50, 350 series), Gandil (Black Sox, VG/EX 50, 460 series), Keeler/bat (EX 60, 350 series), McGraw/glove at hip (VG/EX 50, 460 series), and McGraw/finger in air (VG/EX 50, 350 series). This is a very attractive collection of cards, including five Hall of Famers, with the desirable Sovereign advertising back from the legendary T206 set. The equivalent SMR value in the assigned grades is $1,725 and without any premium assigned to the unusual Sovereign advertising backs. Total: 7 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
