1909-1911 T206 White Border Printing Error: Mickey Doolin (Phila, NL)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $3,851

Extremely unusual T206 card of Mickey Doolin of the Philadelphia Phillies with a factory printing error. The card has a severe factory miscut on the front and back in which the name and team, as well as part of the image, appear at the top of the card. When it comes to the T206 set, which is the most highly collected of all vintage-card sets, anything unusual (especially if it might in any way shed light on the mysteries of how the T206 set was printed) is of great note. This is an extremely rare and unusual printing anomaly. REA's Spring 2013 auction featured another Doolin printing error with a more severe miscut (nearly a 50-50 split but in lesser condition), which realized $9,480. As collectors have become more sophisticated, there has been a growing appreciation for all great rarities and unusual cards associated with the landmark T206 set. This is a fascinating printing error. The card is graded and encapsulated as FAIR 20 by SGC due to the severe miscut but remains extremely attractive with a crisp image, bold colors, light, even wear to the corners, and only faint wrinkling along the bottom of the card on both front and back. Collectors will appreciate the card for its unique printing anomaly much more so than for its condition, but it is noteworthy and preferable that the card displays extremely well. This is a very interesting and unusual card from one of the most iconic baseball-card sets ever produced, which will surely be of great interest to collectors. Value is always subjective, but in this case, there is no consensus on value for this card. We are confident the auction process will provide clarity. Reserve $300. Estimate $500++. SOLD FOR $3,851
