Lot # 287 (of 1727)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1909-1911 T206 White Borders Collection Including Cobb, Mathewson, Young (84)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,525

Original-owner collection of eighty-four different T206 tobacco cards, highlighted by eighteen Hall of Famers including Ty Cobb, Cy Young, and Christy Mathewson. Forty-four cards range from Gd to Vg (with a few Vg-Ex), and forty cards range from Pr to Fr-Gd (includes a few slightly trimmed). Highlights: Brown/Chicago (Vg), Brown/port. (Vg-Ex), Chance/yellow (Gd-Vg), Chase/blue (Gd-Vg), Chase/pink (Gd), Chase/dark cap (Vg), Chesbro (Pr), Cobb/red (Pr), Crawford/bat (Fr), Evers/Chicago (Pr-Fr), Huggins/port. (Fr-Gd), Jennings/one hand (Vg), Keeler/port. (Vg/Vg-Ex), Kleinow/Boston (Gd-Vg), Lajoie/port. (Pr), Mathewson/dark cap (Gd-Vg), McGraw/finger (Vg), McGraw/glove (Gd), McGraw/no cap (Gd-Vg), McGraw/cap (Pr), Tinker/bat off (Vg), and Young/hand (Vg). Tobacco cards in this condition represent perhaps the best value among all vintage baseball cards. This is a totally unpicked original-owner collection of low- to-mid-grade T206s with an extremely high concentration of Hall of Famers. Backs almost all Sweet Caporal, but also included are samples of a couple other brands. Total 84 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500.
SOLD FOR $3,525
