Lot # 165 (of 1336)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1909-1911 T206 White Border Ray Demmitt and Bill O'Hara St. Louis Variations

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $2,160

Offered in this lot as a pair are the rare O'Hara and Demmitt cards from the T206 set, both significant variation rarities from the popular T206 White Border series. These are two of the rarest cards in the set, and are usually the very last cards (not including "The Big Four") required by collectors to complete the T206 set. These cards have been always recognized as great rarities, since the days of Jefferson Burdick. (In fact, Burdick singled out Demmitt and O'Hara, along with Wagner, Plank, and Magie, as significant T206 rarities in the original American Card Catalog.) Both of these cards are graded PR 1 by PSA. Although in low grade, due to various condition flaws, these two cards are especially desirable to many collectors as they present a relatively affordable opportunity to acquire these legendary T206 rarities. These cards would sell for a fortune in high grade! Cards issued with Polar Bear tobacco were not well protected from the accompanying product; thus almost all Demmitt and O’Hara cards have at least some condition problems, including tobacco staining. This is a tremendous opportunity to acquire low-grade examples of these two key T206 rarities. Total: 2 cards.  Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $2,160
