1911 T208 Cullivan's Fireside Eddie Collins

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,819

Graded POOR 10 by SGC. Hall of Famer Eddie Collins from the T208 Cullivan's Fireside tobacco-card set. Low-grade but exceptionally rare example of one of the few Hall of Famers in the set. T208s, of course, are among the rarest of all tobacco cards, and samples, and even a low-grade sample, from this set is virtually impossible to find. The Eddie Collins card has been downgraded due to three heavily worn corners (they appear to have possibly been clipped long ago), and the card is slightly miscut along the bottom, affecting the lettering of the name and team designation; the portrait image is unaffected and, isolated, has a Very Good appearance. This is an extremely rare low-grade Hall of Fame example from T208 Fireside tobacco, one of tobacco-card collecting's most legendary sets. Reserve $500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $3,819
