1909-1911 T206 White Border Printing Anomalies Collection (3) Including Snodgrass Variation

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $720

Extremely interesting collection of three unusual production anomaly cards from the T206 White Border set, each graded and encapsulated by PSA or SGC, and highlighted by the well-known "Nodgrass" error. The "Nodgrass" is a very famous T206 error card apparently caused by a printing plate defect affecting only a very limited print run. Illegitimate examples, missing the entire "S," have been offered for sale before, creating the appearance that it is more common than it really is, but authentic "Nodgrass" error cards are characterized by a tiny sliver of the "S" visible in the nameplate. This is a legitimate and very rare error! This collection consists of the following: Jack Dunn (PSA EX 5, yellow printing shift, resulting in a dramatic yellow line vertically along the left border and yellow highlights visible against the green background), Fred Snodgrass/batting (SGC FAIR 20, "Nodgrass" error), and Harry Steinfeldt/portrait (SGC GOOD 30, partially visible and large factory number "30" visible on the reverse bottom edge). When it comes to the T206 set, which is the most highly collected of all vintage-card sets, anything unusual (especially if it might in any way shed light on the mysteries of how the T206 set was printed) is of great note. As collectors have become more sophisticated, there has been a growing appreciation for all great rarities and unusual cards associated with the landmark T206 set. This is an extremely unusual set of printing anomalies that we believe will greatly interest collectors of the various nuances found within this iconic set. Total: 3 cards.  Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $720
