Lot # 341 (of 1866)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1909-1911 T206 Printing Anomalies Collection (8) - All with Multiple Backs Showing!

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $3,259

Fascinating and unusual collection of eight different cards from the legendary T206 White Border series, each of which is particularly notable for a factory miscut on the back which has resulted in multiple advertising back portions visible. All eight cards feature well-centered fronts but experienced some shifting in the production sheet during the printing process. Portions of two backs are visible on the six Piedmont reverses and one of the Sweet Caporal cards. Five are miscut side-to-side while two are miscut top-to-bottom. The remaining Sweet Caporal reverse displays portions of four different backs. While collectors would appreciate these cards in any condition as the miscut nature of the backs is of primary significance, these cards present well but are technically in modest grade due to creasing (two cards are crease-free and would grade Vg). The advertising backs are entirely clean on all but two cards, which display staining or album residue. The T206 set, affectionately known as "The Monster," is the most popular of all 1910-era sets and is still yielding new and exciting discoveries more than a century after its production. As collectors have become more sophisticated, there has been a growing appreciation for all great rarities and unusual cards associated with this landmark set. These eight cards are noteworthy T206 printing errors that we believe will be of great interest to T206 scholars and collectors. Total: 8 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $3,259
