1912 C46 Imperial Tobacco PSA NM 7 and NM-MT 8 Collection (23)

Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $3,259

Collection of twenty-three different cards from the C46 Imperial Tobacco set, representing approximately one-quarter of a complete set, each professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA. Issued in 1912 by the Imperial Tobacco Company, the 90-card C46 set is the only 1910-era tobacco baseball set issued in Canada. The players featured in this set are members of the eight teams of the Eastern League (Rochester, Toronto, Buffalo, Newark, Providence, Baltimore, Montreal, and Jersey City). PSA Condition Composite: NM-MT 8 (7 cards): #17, 36, 45, 48, 61, 83, and 86. NM 7 (16 cards): #2, 3, 4, 9, 22, 51, 52, 60, 62, 72, 73, 74, 80, 84, 87, and 89. The unique and striking design of the set makes this extremely rare and beautiful issue of special note to collectors. The C46 cards feature a portrait of the player inside an oval surrounded by a wood-grain background. The flush-to-the-border design makes the edges and corners particularly susceptible to chipping and wear. This tremendous, high-grade collection from one of the most elusive and condition-sensitive tobacco issues of the era would serve as an ideal foundation for the assembly of an ultra high-grade set or would provide upgrades to almost any existing C46 set. Total: 23 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $3,259
