Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $8,400
The Southern Leaguers have always been appreciated for their scarcity and as a popular subset to the T206 series. They have also always been listed at a significant premium in relation to regular cards in the set. Presented is a complete set (minus one) of forty-seven of the forty-eight scarce T206 Southern Leaguers, each graded and encapsulated by PSA (twenty-five) and SGC (twenty-two). Missing only Foley White for completion. Twenty-four cards have Piedmont reverses while twenty-three cards have Old Mill backs. Thirty-five of the cards grade between Vg-Ex and Ex+, one grades Vg+, five grade Vg, and two each grade Good+, Good, and Fair.

The scarcity of the Southern Leaguers has always made putting together a complete T206 set particularly difficult. This is a very impressive and carefully assembled complete set (minus just one card) of all Southern Leaguers in the T206 set, with most having an appearance superior to their technically accurate assigned grades. The total SMR value for the group (factoring in the nine half-grades at the lower whole-grade level) is $10,326. Total: 47 cards. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000++. SOLD FOR $8,400
