Collection of thirty-five different cards from the classic T206 White Border series, exclusively featuring Polar Bear advertising reverses. Each card is 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.

GOOD 30 (12 cards): Atz, Bell/follow thru, Conroy/bat, Davidson, Gasper, Lake/no ball, Maddox, Nichols/batting, O'Brien, Seymour/portrait, Sheckard/glove, and Smith/white cap. This is a substantial collection of T206 Polar Bear backs, which represents fourteen percent of a complete set.
