Lot # 158 (of 1594)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1909-1911 T206 White Borders Collection Including Cobb and Mathewson (169)

Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $7,050.00

Collection of 169 T206 White Borders ranging in grade from Pr to Gd-Vg (mostly Fr-Gd). Almost all the cards have paper loss and scrapbook remnants on the reverse as the result of long ago being glued into a scrapbook and later removed. The collection is totally unpicked and includes twenty-five Hall of Famers and key cards (the following grades are without reference to back damage): Baker (Fr-Gd), Brown/Chi. (Pr-Fr), Chance/bat (Gd-Vg), Chance/red (Gd-Vg), Chance/yellow (Vg/Vg-Ex), Chase/dark cap (Vg), Chase/white cap (Gd-Vg), Cicotte ("Black Sox," Vg), Clarke/bat (Vg), Cobb/bat on (trimmed, otherwise Vg), Collins/Phila. (Gd-Vg), Crawford/bat (Vg), G. Davis (Fr-Gd), Evers/port. (Vg/Vg-Ex), Flick (Gd), Huggins/hands (Pr), Kelley (Gd), Mathewson/port. (Vg), Mathewson/dark cap (Vg), McGinnity (Gd-Vg), McGraw/no cap (Vg), Tinker/bat on (Gd), Willis/port. (Gd-Vg), Willis/throw (Vg), and Young/bare hand (Pr-Fr). This is a neat group of cards from “the olden days,” a little rough but still very collectable, and ideal for the collector who does not want to spend a fortune, buts wants real, original circa 1910 tobacco cards which capture the spirit of the history of the game and collecting. We enjoy offering low-grade groups like these because they make the collecting of the most classic baseball card issues possible and more accessible to a wider audience. This is a substantial group of low grade, but still very attractive, T206 White Borders including many highlights. Also included is an R333 DeLong of Terry (Pr), an R318 Batter-Up of #53 Cramer (Vg-Ex/Ex), and an R300 George C. Miller of Bottomley (Fr-Gd). Total 172 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000.. SOLD FOR $7,050.00
