1909-1911 E254 Colgan's Chips Collection Including Ty Cobb (51 cards)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $4,113

Among the most unique and distinctive cards ever produced are the 1909-1911 E254 Colgan's Chips series. The cards are actually circular (1-7/16 inches in diameter) and were issued as inserts with Colgan's Chips ("The Gum That's Round") in the round Colgan's Chips gum tins. Offered is a substantial collection of fifty-one different E254 Colgan's Chips cards including Hall of Famers Frank Baker (Ex), Ty Cobb (Vg), Eddie Collins (Vg), Addie Joss (Ex-Mt), Rube Waddell (Vg), and Cy Young (Gd). The balance of the cards are in varying mid-grade conditions (ranging from Good to Ex, mostly Vg-Ex). E254 Colgan's Chips are far rarer than most tobacco cards of the era, are one of the most interesting sets ever produced, and are one of the most overlooked of all vintage sets. In our opinion, they represent one of the best values of all 1910-era baseball issues. This is a very attractive collection of cards, including several key Hall of Famers highlighted by Ty Cobb, from this distinctive early gum issue. Total 51 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $4,113
