Striking collection of sixteen cards from the T206 White Borders series composed of fifteen Hall of Famers and one prominent star, and each featuring a Polar Bear advertising reverse. Each card is professionally graded and encapsulated by SGC. Polar Bears are an especially popular advertising back with collectors because of the distinct blue background and crisp white printing. This collection consists of the following: VG/EX 50 (11 cards): Bender/trees, Bresnahan/bat, Brown/Chicago (VG/EX+ 55), Chase/dark cap (VG/EX+ 55), Collins/Minneapolis, Jennings/both hands, Joss/hands at chest, McGinnity, McGraw/glove at hip, McGraw/cap, and Willis/throwing. VG 40 (5 cards): Beckley, Griffith/batting, Kelley, Lajoie/bat, and Marquard/pitching. All are bright, crisp, and clean, with bold colors and strong corners. Each of these cards is worthy of inclusion in any classic Hall of Fame card or T206 collection. The equivalent SMR value in the assigned grades (factoring in the two half-grades at the lower whole-grade level) is $2,875. Total: 16 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
