1910 T209 Contentnea Cigarettes "Photo Series" and T210 Old Mill Tobacco SGC-Graded Collection (10)

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

Presented is an outstanding collection of ten cards from the extremely desirable T209 Contentnea and T210 Old Mill tobacco-card sets. Each card is professionally graded and encapsulated by SGC. This collection consists of the following: T209 Contentnea Cigarettes "Photo Series" (4 cards): Bourquin (FAIR 20), Martin (VG 40), McGeehan (FAIR 20), and Walsh (FAIR 20). T210 Old Mill Tobacco (6 cards): Armstrong (FAIR 20, Series 7), Cowell (GOOD+ 35, Series 7), Gilmore (EX 60, Series 5), McGeeham (GOOD 30, Series 7), Pope (VG 40, Series 1), and Sisson (VG/EX 50, Series 1). All cards are bright and crisp, with flawless images. T209 and T210 are among a small selection of elite sets that have long captured the imagination of many of the most legendary collectors, from the earliest days of serious collecting, perhaps more so in years past than even in recent times. The reason many great early collectors prized these cards so highly is twofold: 1) These cards could not (and cannot) simply be purchased in set form. They have to be collected. They are a challenge. 2) Ultimately, cards are about the players that are featured. Many of the players in either set are featured in few or no other sets. These characteristics make the sets especially significant to the game of baseball and to the world of baseball cards, and especially appealing to the most sophisticated collectors. Both T209 and T210 cards also have a very distinctive design with striking player poses unique to each set. An attractive and very desirable collection of ten cards from these two significant 1910-era tobacco-card sets. Total: 10 cards.  Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,080
