1909-1911 T206 White Border Rarities SGC-Graded Collection (6)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,645

Collection of six scarce key cards from the popular T206 White Border series, each graded and encapsulated by SGC. These are six of the cards which make completing a T206 set so difficult. All six of these cards, since the earliest days of organized collecting, have been recognized as among the rarest in the set. 1) George Brown - Washington (VG 40. Bright and crisp, with evenly rounded corners, deep, rich colors, and a light crease in the upper right. Centered to the bottom right. Piedmont back). 2) Bill Dahlen - Brooklyn (VG 40. Very attractive card, with a striking green background, even wear to the corners, and centered to the left. The reverse is clean with bold blue print. Piedmont back). 3) Kid Elberfeld - Washington, Port. (GOOD 30. Very pleasing example, with virtually perfect centering, evenly rounded corners, and some light pencil writing on the back. Piedmont advertisement on reverse). 4) Red Kleinow - Boston (VG/EX 50. Centered slightly to the top, with even wear to the corners. Polar Bear reverse). 5) Carl Lundgren - Chicago (VG 40. Perfectly clean both front and back, with bold colors, even wear to the corners, and very well centered. Piedmont back). 6) Frank Smith - Chicago & Boston (FAIR 20. Centered to the right, with light, even wear to the corners, and a chip of paper loss on the top border. Piedmont reverse). All six are strong cards for their respective grades with outstanding eye-appeal. The T206 set is universally recognized as the premier tobacco-card issue of the 1910 era. This is a very attractive collection of six key cards from the highly prized T206 set. The equivalent SMR value for the assigned grades is $1,275. Total: 6 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,645
