Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,259

Circa 1910 P2 Sweet Caporal pin collection of sixty different (plus seven duplicates for a total of sixty-seven pins) representing approximately 30% of a complete set. This collection is of special note as it is highlighted by an incredible forty-three Hall of Famers, including Johnson, Mathewson, and Young. This is an extraordinarily high concentration of Hall of Famers, representing thirty-eight of the forty-five different Hall of Fame variations within the P2 set. All but three pins in the entire collection have the original advertising back papers complete and intact. Twenty-seven pins are graded and encapsulated by PSA. Grading Composite: NM 7 (6 pins): Bender (large), Collins (small), Marquard, Tinker (large), Walsh, and Wheat (large).

P2s represent one of the best values of all 1910-era tobacco issues. This is an outstanding and extremely attractive collection of these popular pins, comprised predominantly of Hall of Famers in high grade. The total SMR value for just the twenty-seven PSA-graded pins (not including the 40 ungraded pins!) is $3,295. Total: 67 pins. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $3,259
