1911 T201 Mecca Double Folders Complete Set (50)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,800

Presented is a complete set of all fifty cards comprising the T201 Mecca Double Folders set. Ten cards are Vg-Ex, twenty-eight range from Gd to Vg, and twelve grade lesser, mostly Fr. This is a very attractive complete set of this classic tobacco issue (far nicer than suggested by the technically accurate condition composite). The thin stock makes these cards especially susceptible to corner rounding and light paper wrinkles, so (as is often the case with T201 Mecca Double Folders) even the lower-grade cards in this set have great visual appeal. Keys: Baker/Collins (Gd, stamped Jeff Burdick on reverse), Bender/Oldring (Gd), Bergen/Wheat (Vg+), Bresnahan/Huggins (Fr), Bridwell/Mathewson (Pr/Fr), Brown/Hofman (Gd), Byrne/Clarke (Vg-Ex), Chance/Evers (Fr), Chase/Sweeney (Vg-Ex), Cicotte/Thoney (Vg+), Cobb/Crawford (Gd), Falkenberg/Lajoie (Fr), Gardner/Speaker (Pr/Fr), Jennings/Summers (Vg+), Johnson/Street (Vg), Lake/Wallace (Fr), McCarty/McGinnity (Gd/Vg), and Payne/Walsh (Vg-Ex). This is a very consistent and attractive complete set of one of the era's most classic tobacco issues. The T201 set includes twenty Hall of Famers and is arguably one of the best values of all 1910-era tobacco-card issues. Total: 50 cards. SOLD FOR $1,800
