1910 T219 Champion Pugilists Complete Set (50): #2 PSA Set Registry! (3.53 GPA)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,304

Outstanding complete set of T219 Champion Pugilists, entirely graded and encapsulated by PSA. This complete set of fifty cards currently ranks second on the PSA Set Registry with an overall GPA of 3.53. All cards in the offered set feature advertising for Honest Long Cut tobacco. The T219 set depicts boxers exclusively and is one of the most popular sets among boxing-card collectors; it is similar in design to the T218 and T220 issues of the era, which also feature various athletes and prizefighters. PSA Grading Composite: EX 5 (3 cards): Deshler, Driscoll, and F. Nelson. VG-EX+ 4.5 (6 cards): Attell, Cross, Langford, W. Lewis, McGovern, and O'Brien. VG-EX 4 (18 cards): Baldwin, Brannigan, K. Brown, Conley, Corbett, Donahoe, A. Goodman, Ketchel, Klaus, Kline, H. Lewis, Loughrey, McFarland, Mellody, B. Nelson, O'Keefe, Stewart, and West. VG+ 3.5 (4 cards): Delmont, Hurley, Nitchie, and M. Sullivan. VG 3 (10 cards): J. Goodman, Jeanette, Jeffries, Johnson, Kaufman, Keyes, Marto, Murphy, J. Sullivan, and Wolgast. GOOD+ 2.5 (1 card): Welsh. GOOD 2 (8 cards): Coulon, Moran, Neil, O'Toole, Papke, Russell, Stone, and Walsh. Compared to baseball cards of the era, these early boxing cards, which are at least as scarce, represent a particularly outstanding value. This is an extremely attractive complete set of this classic tobacco-card boxing set from the early twentieth century. Total: 50 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,304
