1910 T210 Old Mill Tobacco SGC-Graded Collection (12) Including Orange Border
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $960
Presented is an outstanding collection of twelve different cards from the T210 Old Mill Tobacco series, highlighted by a Series 3 orange border of Thebo. Each card is graded and encapsulated by SGC (except for one PSA). The T210 set is comprised of eight different series, each representing a different minor league. The various series are identified by a number along the top border on the back of the card. With 640 players, it is the largest tobacco set of the twentieth century and is immediately identifiable by its distinctive red borders. This elusive issue is best known for its key cards: the rare Joe Jackson (Series 8) card, as well as Casey Stengel (Series 6) as a player. This collection consists of the following: Dwyer (Series 1, FAIR 20), Howard (Series 1, VG 40), Jordan (Series 8, VG/EX+ 55), Lee/Jacksonville (Series 1, FAIR 20), Lipe/batting (Series 1, GOOD 30), Lipe/portrait (Series 1, PSA GOOD 2), Manion (Series 1, VG/EX 50), Mayberry (Series 2, FAIR 20), Mullaney (Series 1, FAIR 20), Reagan (Series 1, VG/EX 50), Thebo (Series 3, orange border, FAIR 20), and Viola (Series 1, VG 40). T210 Old Mill Tobacco cards 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 sets could not (and cannot) simply be purchased in set form. They are rare. They have to be collected. They are a challenge. 2) Ultimately, cards are about the players that are featured. Many of the players in T210 (as well as other sets listed above) are featured in few or no other sets. These characteristics make the red-bordered T210 Old Mill set especially significant to the game of baseball and to the world of baseball cards, and especially appealing to the most sophisticated collectors. T210 Old Mill cards also have a very distinctive design with unique and very striking player poses. This is a superb sampling of cards from this set, highlighted by a single Series 8 example as well as a distinctive Series 3 orange-border card. Total: 12 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
