1912 T207 Brown Background SGC-Graded Rarities Collection (15) - All Cycle Backs!

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,920

Collection of twelve different (plus three duplicates) T207 Brown Background cards, all rarities in the T207 set, each featuring the rare Cycle Cigarettes advertising reverse. All fifteen cards are professionally graded and encapsulated by SGC. T207s are found with a number of different advertising backs (similar to T205 and T206), and Cycle backs have always been considered to be among the rarest. This collection consists of the following: Butcher (GOOD 30), Downey (GOOD 30), Fournier (FAIR 20), Kirke (GOOD 30), two Kuhn (POOR 10 and Authentic), Moore (FAIR 20, Lionel Carter Collection), Phelan (GOOD 30), Rasmussen (Authentic), two Ryan (POOR 10 and Authentic, Nagy Collection), Sweeney (GOOD 30), Tyler (GOOD 30), and two G. White (both GOOD 30, one Lionel Carter Collection). This is an extremely attractive group, despite the modest assigned grades, with crisp images and strong colors. Striking red Cycle Cigarettes advertisements on the back. The rare-back cards (Cycle, Broadleaf, and no advertising) are usually associated with the rarer cards in the T207 set, as virtually all (including all presented here) were only issued with the rare advertising backs. This is an outstanding collection of fifteen of the rarer cards that make the assembly of a complete T207 set so difficult, each featuring the rare red Cycle Cigarettes advertising reverse. Total: 15 cards.  Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,920
