Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $2,963

Complete set of fifty 1910 T80 "Military Series" cards, all graded and encapsulated by PSA. Extremely attractive complete set of these beautiful tobacco cards, which feature military figures from around the world in dress uniforms against colorful backgrounds. This is a very strong set across the board, with forty-four of the fifty cards ranking as the highest-graded examples ever evaluated by PSA. This set is the All-Time Finest listed on the PSA Set Registry with an overall GPA of 6.27 and is only a handful of cards away from being entirely comprised of highest-graded examples. All fifty cards in the set have Tolstoi advertising reverses (the set was also issued with Cairo Monopol, Lenox, and Uzit backs). In the following condition composite, cards are identified by the numbers provided by the American Tobacco Cards Price Guide checklist. PSA Grading Composite: NM-MT+ 8.5 (1 card): #2. NM-MT 8 (4 cards): #1, 8, 21, and 22 (OC). NM+ 7.5 (4 cards): #5, 13, 15, and 30. NM 7 (19 cards): #12, 14, 18, 19, 20, 24, 26, 27, 29, 31, 33 (MC), 35, 36, 37, 38, 43, 44 (OC), 45, and 49. EX-MT+ 6.5 (2 cards): #32 and 39. EX-MT 6 (13 cards): #7, 11, 17, 23, 25, 28, 34, 40, 41, 42, 46, 48, and 50 (MC). EX 5 (2 cards): #3 and 10. VG-EX 4 (4 cards): #6, 9, 16, and 47. Authentic (1 card): #4 (recolored). Also included are forty-one duplicates (thirty different) which provide an outstanding foundation for the assembly of another extremely attractive complete set. Overall condition of twenty-six of the duplicates is Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt (averaging Ex) with the remaining fifteen duplicates grading Vg or lesser (including a few trimmed). Three cards are graded: #9 (GOOD 2), 40 (EX 5), and 41 (EX-MT 6). This is an exceptional complete set of this popular 1910-era tobacco issue, which has survived in tremendously high grade and would be a worthy addition to any nonsport-card collection.
