Complete set of seventy-five different 1910 T210 Old Mill "Series 1" cards featuring S. Atlantic League players. The T210 set is actually composed of eight different series, each a set unto itself, representing a different minor leagues. The "Series 1" cards feature players from the South Atlantic League. A complete series such as this is very rarely offered.

This complete "Series 1" set consists of the following: Bagwell, Balenti, Becker, Bensen, Benton, Bierkortte, Bierman, Breitenstein, Bremmerhof, Carter, Cavender, Collins, DeFraites, Dudley, Dwyer, Edwards, Enbanks, Eubank, Fox, Hannifan, Hartley, Hauser, Hille, Howard, Hoyt, Huber, Ison, Jones, Kalkhoff, Krebs, Lawrence, Lee (Jacksonville), Lee (Macon), Lewis (Columbia), Lewis (Columbus), Lipe (batting), Lipe (portrait), Long, Magoon, Manion, Marshall, Martin, Martina, Massing, McLeod, McMahon, Morse, Mullaney, Mulldowney, Murch, Norcum, Pelkey, Petit, Pierce, Pope, Radebaugh, Raynolds, Reagan, Redfern, Reynolds, Schulz, Schulze, Schwietzka, Shields, Sisson, Smith, Sweeney, Taffee, Toren, Viola, Wagner, Wahl, Weems, Wells, and Wohlleben. Condition is 21% Vg-Ex, 69% Gd to Vg, and 10% lesser due to slight trimming or color added.

The T210 Old Mill Tobacco card set has always been extremely highly regarded by advanced collectors because it features so many players that appear in no other sets, it has a very distinctive design, it is scarce compared to most other tobacco-card sets of the era, and it features striking photos that are unique to the set. The T210 Old Mill set is also well known by all collectors due to its inclusion of Joe Jackson (Series 8) and Casey Stengel (Series 6), which are today regarded as two of the most famous and valuable of all baseball cards. It is virtually impossible to complete the entire set, and only a few complete sets (or even sets minus a few cards) have ever been assembled. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a complete set of one of the key series, featuring South Atlantic League players of the Southern League (interesting note: some of these players will be familiar for their appearance in T206). Total: 75 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+.
