1911 T201 Mecca Double Folders Complete Set (50)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,259
Presented is a complete set of all fifty cards comprising the T201 Mecca Double Folders set. Twelve cards grade Ex, twenty-three grade Vg-Ex, and fifteen grade Vg (including four Gd). This is an extremely attractive complete set of this classic tobacco issue. The thin stock makes these cards especially susceptible to corner rounding and light paper wrinkles, so (as is often the case with T201 Mecca Double Folders) even the lower-grade cards in this set have great visual appeal, appearing far stronger than suggested by their technically accurate grades. We have selected three cards to be graded by SGC. Keys: Baker/Collins (Ex), Bender/Oldring (Ex), Bergen/Wheat (Gd/Vg), Bresnahan/Huggins (Vg-Ex+), Bridwell/Mathewson (VG+ 45), Brown/Hofman (Vg), Byrne/Clarke (Vg+), Chance/Evers (Gd), Chase/Sweeney (Vg-Ex), Cicotte/Thoney (Vg-Ex), Cobb/Crawford (EX 60), Falkenberg/Lajoie (Ex), Gardner/Speaker (Gd/Vg), Jennings/Summers (Vg+), Johnson/Street (VG/EX 50), Lake/Wallace (Vg-Ex+), McCarty/McGinnity (Gd), and Payne/Walsh (Vg-Ex). This is a very consistent and attractive complete set of one of the era's most classic tobacco issues. The T201 set includes twenty Hall of Famers and is arguably one of the best values of all 1910 tobacco-card issues. This is a beautiful mid-grade set! The equivalent SMR for just the three graded cards (not including the forty-seven additional cards and factoring in the Mathewson at the lower whole-grade level) is $1,180. Total: 50 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $3,259
