Lot # 201 (of 1336)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1909-1911 T206 White Border George McQuillan Ball in Hand Advertising Back Collection (8) Including Brown Hindu

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,080

Presented is an impressive collection of eight T206 George McQuillan/ball in hand (Philadelphia Phillies) cards, each featuring a different advertisement and factory number on the reverse. The extraordinary nature of this collection is easily seen even at a glance, and this grouping represents a near-complete collection of the eleven known T206 advertising backs for this card. Only El Principe de Gales, Sweet Caporal 150 Factory 25, and Sweet Caporal 350 Factory 25 backs are missing for completion. Obviously, a great deal of time and effort has been invested in the assembly of this collection. All eight cards are professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA (except for one SGC). This collection consists of the following: Two EX-MT 6: Piedmont 150 Factory 25 (MC) and Sweet Caporal 150 Factory 649 Overprint. One EX 5: Sovereign 150. Four VG-EX 4: Brown Hindu, Piedmont 350 Factory 25, Sweet Caporal 150 Factory 30 (SGC VG/EX 50), and Sweet Caporal 350 Factory 30. One VG 3: Old Mill. T206s are the single most important and highly collected of all 1910-era cards. One of the primary characteristics of the T206 set is that most players are featured with different advertising on the reverses. Each card is a striking and high-quality example on its own, but together they complement one another, and tell part of the story of the T206 set. This is a tremendous collection of eight of only eleven known advertising backs for George McQuillan (ball in hand) within the T206 set. Total: 8 cards.  Reserve $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,080
