1910 S74 "Colored" Tobacco Silks Collection (14) Including Cobb, Mathewson, and Young

Starting Bid - $100, Sold For - $1,185

Extremely attractive collection of fourteen different 1910 S74 Tobacco Silks, highlighted by five Hall of Famers, including Ty Cobb, Christy Mathewson, and Cy Young. Overall condition is Very Good to Excellent with varying degrees of fraying along the edges. All fourteen silks feature the factory number along the top and the cigarette manufacturer (Old Mill Cigarettes) along the bottom. This collection consists of the following: Bridwell, Camnitz, Cobb (HOF, manufacturer line is heavily frayed), Carrigan, Doyle, Elberfeld, Evers (HOF, factory line is heavily frayed), Knight, Marquard (HOF), Mathewson (HOF), Paskert, Snodgrass, Wiltse, and Young (HOF). By any measure, S74s represent one of the very best values of all 1910-era baseball tobacco issues. This is a small, but particularly attractive collection of these colorful tobacco premiums, including several key stars. Total: 14 silks. Reserve $100. Estimate $200++. SOLD FOR $1,185
