1909-1911 T206 White Border Collection (167)
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $9,600
Exceptional collection of 148 different cards (plus nineteen duplicates for a total of 167 cards) from the T206 White Border series, highlighted by seven Hall of Famers, four Southern Leaguers, and eight cards of stars Hal Chase, Eddie Cicotte, and Chick Gandil. The offered collection represents 28% of a complete set! These cards were part of a very substantial, totally untouched collection of 1910-era tobacco cards consigned to this auction (all cards from this collection appear in several lots on the Internet Only section). Interestingly, all cards in the offered grouping have a Piedmont advertising reverse. Condition of the group is 38% Vg-Ex (including a few better), 44% Vg, and 18% Fr to Gd. We submitted twelve cards to be professionally graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: Bender/portrait (HOF, Fr), Chance/batting (HOF, GOOD 30), Chase/blue (partial name at top, Vg), three Chase/dark cap (EX/NM 80, VG/EX+ 55, and Gd+), two Chase/holding trophy (EX 60 and Vg), Cicotte (Fr), Crawford/throwing (HOF, VG 40), Duffy (HOF, GOOD+ 35), Evers/Chicago on shirt (HOF, VG 40), Gandil (EX 60), Hart (Southern Leaguer, VG/EX+ 55), McGraw/finger in air (HOF, EX 60), Orth (Southern Leaguer, EX+ 70), Seitz (Southern Leaguer, Vg), Tinker/bat on (HOF, name at top, Gd), and Westlake (Southern Leaguer, VG/EX+ 55). Seven cards have some or all of the name printed at top: Ball/Cleveland, Bergen/catching, Bridwell/portrait, Chase/blue, Elberfield/fielding, Frill, and Tinker/bat on. All the cards in this collection are extremely presentable; bright, clean, fresh, and overall very consistent in grade, with the vast majority of cards in a relatively narrow range of conditions. T206s perhaps more so than any other vintage issue are extremely popular in all grades. This is an ideal collection to serve as the foundation for the assembly of an extremely visually appealing complete set of T206, the most popular and classic set of the 1910 era. The equivalent SMR value in the assigned grades for just the twelve graded cards (not including the 155 ungraded cards!) is $2,785. Total: 167 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500++. SOLD FOR $9,600
