1912 C61 Imperial Tobacco Lacrosse Partial Set (23/50)

Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $948

Partial set of the rare C61 Imperial Tobacco cards, devoted exclusively to the game of lacrosse. This set, along with the colorized C59 and C60 sets, is one the premier lacrosse sets of the era. These sets are highly popular among many serious collectors, including hockey-card collectors, and are appreciated for their great scarcity. These very significant and scarce sets are often overlooked by collectors, but present fantastic opportunities to acquire early sports cards of several notable lacrosse players as well as many future Hockey Hall of Famers. Included in this collection are the following: #1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 14, 17, 19, 20, 22, 25, 26, 36, 37, 38, 40, 46, 48, 49, and 50. Nine cards grade Vg or Vg-Ex while the balance range in grade from Pr to Gd. This is the first collection of these 1912 C61 Imperial Tobacco cards that we have ever offered. This is a very substantial mixed-grade group of these very scarce tobacco cards. Total: 23 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $948
