Collection of three different T207 Brown Background cards, all rarities in the T207 set, each featuring the rare Cycle Cigarettes advertising reverse. All three cards are professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA (except for one SGC). T207s are found with several different advertising backs (similar to T205 and T206), and Cycle backs have always been considered to be among the rarest. This collection consists of the following: Vean Gregg (NM-MT 8 [OC]), Alexander McCarthy (NM 7, 1 of 1 at this level, one higher), and Red Nelson (SGC GOOD 30). This is an extremely attractive group! The striking red Cycle Cigarettes advertisements on the back are entirely clean and boldly printed. The rare-back cards (Cycle, Broadleaf, and no advertising) are associated with the rarer cards in the T207 set, as virtually all (including all presented here) were issued only with the rare advertising backs. This is an outstanding collection of three of the rarer cards that make the assembly of a complete T207 set so difficult, each featuring the rare red Cycle Cigarettes advertising reverse. Total: 3 cards.  Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
