T206 Hall of Famer Collection with Unusual Advertising Backs Including Cobb (4)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,231

Presented is a very unique collection of four T206 Hall of Famer cards, highlighted by Ty Cobb, of which three have a scarce and unusual advertisement on the reverse. This would be an impressive collection of Hall of Famers with any advertising reverses. Most T206 cards, of course, feature advertising for Sweet Caporal or Piedmont, but three of the cards in this group have been carefully chosen both for featuring Hall of Famers and for their unusual backs. All four portrait poses have been graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. The collection consists of the following: 1) Jack Chesbro (Sovereign 150); 2) Ty Cobb - red background (Tolstoi; bright and crisp, with a striking red background, no creases, even corner wear, and centered a hint to the left); 3) Johnny Evers - portrait (El Principe De Gales); and 4) Joe Tinker - portrait (PSA VG-EX 4, Piedmont). This is a impressive group of very noteworthy T206 Hall of Famers including three featuring unusual advertising backs. Without reference to the three scarce backs, the SMR value for the group is $1,865. Total: 4 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $3,231
