Starting Bid - $3,000, Sold For - $13,200
Outstanding collection of forty-six different scarce T206 Southern Leaguers (out of the forty-eight cards which comprise the entire “Southern League” subset), each graded and encapsulated by PSA. Missing only Orth (of Lynchburg) and Perdue (of Nashville) for completion. Three cards grade EX+ 5.5, thirty-one cards grade EX 5, three cards grade VG-EX+ 4.5, and nine cards grade VG-EX 4. Every card in this collection is extremely attractive and has been carefully chosen by our consignor for inclusion in this extraordinary near-complete set. Twenty-five cards have an Old Mill reverse, while the balance of twenty-one are all Piedmont. PSA Grading Composite: Three EX+ 5.5: Guiheen - Portsmouth, Kiernan - Columbia, and King - Danville. Thirty-one EX 5: Bastian - San Antonio, Breitenstein - New Orleans (Old Mill), Coles - Augusta (Old Mill), Cranston - Memphis (Old Mill), Foster - Charleston (Old Mill), Fritz - New Orleans, Greminger - Montgomery (Old Mill), Hart - Little Rock, Hart - Montgomery (Old Mill), Helm - Columbus (Old Mill), Hickman - Mobile, Hooker - Lynchburg, Howard - Savannah (Old Mill), LaFitte - Macon, Lentz - Little Rock, Lipe - Richmond, McCauley - Portsmouth, Miller - Dallas (Old Mill), Molesworth - Birmingham (Old Mill), Otey - Norfolk (Old Mill), Reagan - New Orleans, Revelle - Richmond (Old Mill), Rockenfeld - Montgomery, Seitz - Norfolk (Old Mill), Smith - Atlanta (Old Mill), Smith - Shreveport, Stark - San Antonio, Thornton - Mobile (Old Mill), Violat - Jacksonville (Old Mill), Westlake - Danville, and White - Houston. Three VG-EX+ 4.5: Bay - Nashville (Old Mill), Jordan - Atlanta (Old Mill), and Manion - Columbia (Old Mill). Nine VG-EX 4: Bernhard - Nashville (Old Mill), Carey - Memphis, Ellam - Nashville, Mullaney - Jacksonville (Old Mill), Paige - Charleston (Old Mill), Persons - Montgomery, Shaughnessy - Roanoke (Old Mill), Ryan - Roanoke (Old Mill), and Thebo - Waco (Old Mill). The Southern Leaguers have always been appreciated for their scarcity and as a popular subset to the T206 series. Collectors find it particularly challenging to assemble a complete set. This is a very impressive looking group worthy of inclusion in the finest T206 set or prewar-card collection. The total SMR value of this collection (factoring in the six half grades at the lower whole-grade level) is $13,280. Total: 46 cards. SOLD FOR $13,200
