1910 T210 Old Mill Tobacco "Series 7" E. Carolina League Complete Set Minus 1 (66/67)
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $9,400
Complete set (minus 1) of sixty-six different 1910 T210 Old Mill "Series 7" cards featuring E. Carolina League players. Missing only Merchant for completion. The T210 set is actually comprised of eight different series, each a set unto itself, and each representing a different minor league. The "Series 7" cards feature players from the E. Carolina League. A complete T210 series (in this case missing one card) is very rarely offered. This "Series 7" set (minus Merchant) is part of an extraordinary complete T210 Old Mill set (Series 1 through 8) that was assembled over a period of many years by an extremely advanced collector, and that is being offered by series in this auction. Twenty-six cards range from Vg-Ex to Ex, and forty are in slightly lesser grade (mostly Gd). This complete "Series 7" set (minus 1) consists of the following: Armstrong, Beatty, Biel, Bonner, Brandt, Brown, Cantwell, Carrol, Cooney, Cooper, Cowell, Cregan, Crockett, Dailey, Dobbs, Dussault, Dwyer, Evans, Forgue, Fulton, Galvin, Gastmeyer (batting), Gastmeyer (fielding), Gates, Gillespie, Griffin, Gunderson, Ham, Handiboe, Hart, Hartley, Hobbs, Hyames, Irving, Kaiser, Kelley, Kelly, Kelly (mascot), Luyster, MacDonald, Malcolm, Mayer, McCormick, McGeehan, Mills, Morgan, Morris, Munson, Newman, Novak, O'Halloran, Phelan, Prim, Reeves, Richardson, Schumaker, Sharp, Sherrill, Simmons, Steinbach, Stoehr, Taylor, Webb, Whelan, Wolf, and Wright. The T210 Old Mill Tobacco card set has always been extremely highly regarded by advanced collectors due to its featuring so many players that appear in no other sets, as well as its very distinctive design, its scarcity compared to most other tobacco-card sets of the era, and its extremely striking photos that are unique to the set. The T210 Old Mill set is also well known by all collectors due to its inclusion of Joe Jackson (Series 8) and Casey Stengel (Series 6), two of the most famous and valuable of all baseball cards. It is virtually impossible to complete the entire set and only a few complete sets (or even sets minus a few cards) have ever been assembled. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a complete set (minus 1 card) of one the key series, featuring E. Carolina League players of the Southern League (interesting note: some of these players will be familiar for their appearance in T206), painstakingly assembled by an an extremely dedicated advanced collector. As is often the case with these red-bordered cards, there is some wear to the red borders, mostly in the corners. This is a particularly impressive group, far better than normally found, with many cards in very high grade for this condition-sensitive issue. Total: 66 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500+. SOLD FOR $9,400
