Presented is a collection of forty-one different cards from the classic T206 White Border series, exclusively featuring Polar Bear advertising reverses. Each card is graded and encapsulated EX 60 by SGC (except for one EX+ 70 as noted). 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: Barbeau, Bescher/portrait, Bridwell/cap, Camnitz/arm at side, Camnitz/hands above head, Davis/Davis on front, Doyle/bat on left, Elberfeld/fielding, Engle, Fromme, Gray, Herzog/Boston, Howell/hands at waist, Hulswitt, Hummel, Kisinger, Krause/portrait, LaPorte, Leach/bending over, Livingstone, Lord, Manning/pitching, McIntyre/Bklyn & Chicago, Merkle/throwing, Moran/Chicago, Mullen (EX+ 70), Oakes, O'Leary/hands on knees, Payne, Pfeister/seated, Phelps, Raymond, Rucker/throwing, Schlei/batting, Seymour/throwing, Smith/Brooklyn, Snodgrass/catching, Stanage, Wagner/bat on right, White/pitching, and Willett. This is a substantial collection of T206 Polar Bear backs, which represents sixteen percent of a complete subset. The equivalent SMR value in the assigned grades (factoring in the one half-grade at the lower whole-grade level) is $5,740. Total: 60 cards. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000++.
