1909-1911 T206 White Border Baltimore Orioles Complete Team Set (9) - All American Beauty Backs!
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $960
Complete Baltimore Orioles team set from the T206 White Borders series consisting of nine different cards, each with an American Beauty 350 tobacco advertisement on the reverse. American Beauty is a scarce back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and seen far less often than standard Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising backs. Although there are only nine Orioles in the entire T206 set, finding and assembling examples of each, each with the American Beauty 350 advertising reverse, naturally requires a great investment of time, patience, and dedication. This collection consists of the following: Two PSA VG-EX 4: Poland and Slagle (MC). Six VG 40: Adkins, Cassidy, Dessau, Hall, Jackson, and Strang. One GOOD+ 35: Dunn. (Note: American Beauty back T205 and T206 cards are all naturally slightly narrower than cards with other advertising reverses.) This is a very attractive complete collection of all nine T206 Baltimore Orioles cards, each featuring the unusual and desirable American Beauty advertising back. Total: 9 cards. SOLD FOR $960
