Lot # 243 (of 1411)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1911 T201 Mecca Double Folders Complete Set (50)

Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $7,540.00

12 cards are Ex, 15 cards Vg-Ex/Ex, 12 Vg-Ex, 11 Vg. This is an extremely attractive and fairly high-grade complete set of this classic tobacco issue. Most cards which we have graded Vg-Ex or Vg-Ex/Ex appear Ex at a glance, and have been downgraded solely due to the minor flaws which are so common to the issue. The thin stock and foldover design of T201s make them especially susceptible to small creases as well as light corner wear. We have selected six cards to be graded by PSA. Keys: Baker/Collins (Vg-Ex/Ex), Bender/Oldring (light stain at top, otherwise Ex), Bergen/Wheat (Vg-Ex/Ex), Bresnahan/Huggins (Vg-Ex/Ex), Bridwell/Mathewson (PSA VG-EX 4 [MK], pencil mark erased on back), Brown/Hofman (Vg-Ex), Byrne/Clarke (PSA NM 7), Chance/Evers (Vg-Ex/Ex), Chase/Sweeney (Vg-Ex/Ex), Cicotte/Thoney (Vg to Vg-Ex), Cobb/Crawford (PSA VG-EX 4), Dougherty/Lord (PSA VG-EX 4), Falkenberg/Lajoie (Vg), Gardner/Speaker (Vg), Jennings/Summers (Ex), Johnson/Street (Vg), Lake/Wallace (Ex), McCarty/McGinnity (Vg-Ex/Ex), Payne/Walsh (PSA EX-MT 6), and one common McBride/Elberfeld (PSA NM 7). Exceptionally crisp, clean, and attractive complete set of Mecca Double Folders, far superior to sets usually found. This set has great eye-appeal! The T201 set includes twenty Hall of Famers and is arguably one of the best values of all 1910 tobacco card issues. SMR value for just the six graded cards alone is $2,215. Total 50 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000. SOLD FOR $7,540.00
