Collection of 140 different T206 White Border tobacco cards plus twenty duplicates (for a total of 160 cards), each graded and encapsulated FR 1.5 (thirty-one) or PR 1 (129) by PSA. Included are Hall of Famers Frank Chance and Miller Huggins, as well as Black Sox star Chick Gandil (three) and scarce Southern Leaguer Molly Miller. All have Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising backs. This is part of a larger collection of T206 cards, which we have broken down into several smaller lots organized by condition. This collection consists of the following: FR 1.5 (31 cards): Abstein, Armbruster, Bates, Berger, Bescher/port., two Birmingham, Camnitz/arms folded, Carrigan, Crandall/with cap, Criss, Dooin, Doolan/fielding, Ferguson, Goode, Hall, Hemphill, Karger, Lattimore, Maddox, Magee/with bat, D. Miller, P. Moran, O'Leary/port., Reulbach/no glove, Schmidt/port., Schreck, Shipke, Smith/white cap, Snodgrass/catching, and Thomas. PR 1 (129 cards): Ames/hands over head, Ames/port., Atz, Barbeau, S. Barry, Bergen/catching, Bowerman, Brain, Brashear, Burch/fielding, Burke, Butler, Byrne, Carr, Chance/red port. (HOF), Chappelle, Chase/blue port., Clancy, two J.

Smith, Snodgrass/catching, Spencer, Stahl/glove, Stahl/no glove, Steinfeldt/with bat, Stephens, two Strang, Street/catching, Stephens, Sullivan, Thielman, Thomas, Warhop, two Weimer, White/pitching, White/port., J. White, Williams, two Wiltse/no cap, and Zimmerman. The cards in this collection vary greatly in overall appeal (as is common for cards graded at this level), but many of these cards are extremely pleasing and have only been downgraded due to faults on the reverse. This is a very impressive group that could serve as a substantial foundation for the assembly of a complete T206 set. The fact that all are encapsulated by PSA in a consistent grade (and, due to their modest technical grades, are relatively affordable) makes this a particularly noteworthy collection. The total SMR value (factoring in the thirty-one half-grades at the the lower whole-grade level) is $2,659. Total: 160 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++. SOLD FOR $2,666
