1909-1911 T206 White Border SGC-Graded Collection (161)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $4,444
Outstanding collection of 130 different cards (plus thirty-one duplicates) from the classic T206 White Border series, highlighted by eight Hall of Famers, two scarce Southern Leaguers, and an attractive example of the Elberfeld/Washington portrait rarity. This is a tremendous group of cards which represents one-quarter of a complete set. Each card in this collection, which have been culled from a much larger T206 assemblage we have submitted for grading for our consignor, has been encapsulated by SGC as "Authentic" due to evidence of trimming (all submitted by REA). These cards were purchased by our consignor in the days prior to the rise in popularity of professional grading, in the 1980s and 1990s. Many were described as Near Mint or better at that time and were selected for their overall eye-appeal and display sharp corners, bright colors, and crisp images. Some of the cards would technically grade lesser (without respect to possible trimming) due to rounded corners or wrinkles, but overall this is an extremely attractive group presenting as Excellent or better. All cards have Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising reverses, except for seven Old Mill, five Tolstoi, four Sovereign, two El Principe de Gales, and one Polar Bear.
