1909-1911 T206 White Border PSA-Graded Collection (53) - All Tolstoi Backs!
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,259
Presented is a collection of forty-eight different cards (plus five duplicates) from the classic T206 White Border series, each feauring a desirable Tolstoi advertising reverse. Entirely graded and encapsulated by PSA. Tolstoi is a scarce back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and seen far less often than the standard Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising back. This collection consists of the following: VG-EX 4 (5 cards): Byrne, F. Delehanty (MK), Doolan/batting (MK), Doyle/port. (MK), and Schlei/port. VG+ 3.5 (1 card): Wiltse/port cap. VG 3 (12 cards): Barger, Bergen, Ford, Geyer, Gray, Moeller, Quillen (MK), Schaeffer/Wash, Ha. Smith, Stahl/glove shows, Strang, and Street/catching. GOOD+ 2.5 (5 cards): Abbaticchio/blue sleeves, Conroy/bat, Gandil (Black Sox), Lattimore, and Magee/bat. GOOD 2 (19 cards): Atz, Bender/no trees (HOF), Chance/batting (HOF), Chappelle, Dougherty/arm in air, Doyle/bat, Evans, Evers/Chicago (HOF), Ford, Herzog/Boston, D. Howard, Huggins/hands at mouth (HOF), Mattern, Needham, Perring, Rucker/throwing, Shannon, Slagle, and Strang (MK). FAIR 1.5 (2 cards): Doolan/batting and McGinnity (HOF). POOR 1 (5 cards): Crawford/bat (HOF), Doyle/NY hands above head, Kleinow/Boston, Nattress, and Willetts. Authentic (4 cards): Beckley (HOF), Evans, Ferguson, and Mattern. The total SMR value in the assigned grades for forty-four of the fifty-three cards (not including the five qualified cards and also not including the four cards graded "Authentic" and factoring in the eight half-grades at the lower whole-grade level) is $1,848 without considering any premium for the Tolstoi advertising backs. Total: 53 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++. SOLD FOR $3,259
