1910-Era Original-Owner T-Card Collection (152) with 16 Hall of Famers Including Ty Cobb

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,900

Presented is an original-owner collection of 152 cards from three classic tobacco-card sets (T205, T206, and T207), highlighted by sixteen Hall of Famers, including Ty Cobb. We have selected four cards from this collection to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. This collection consists of the following: 1) 1909-1911 T206 White Border (5 cards): Cobb/green portrait (HOF, Pr, clipped corners), Ganzel (Pr), Manning/batting (Pr), Schmidt/throwing (Pr), and Steinfeldt/with bat (Gd). 2) 1911 T205 Gold Borders (17 cards): including Chase/frame extends (trimmed, otherwise Vg) and Wallace/with cap (HOF, Fr/Gd). Balance is Pr to Fr, with one Gd. 3) 1912 T207 Brown Background (130 cards): including Bender (HOF, Fr), four Bresnahan (HOF, VG+ 45, Gd, and two severely trimmed), Hooper (HOF, Pr), three Johnson (HOF, VG/EX+ 55, VG+ 45, and severely trimmed), Marquard (HOF, Gd), Speaker (HOF, FAIR 20), two Tinker (HOF, both Vg), and Wood (Pr). Balance is twenty-three Vg or better, twenty-four Gd, thirty-one Pr, and thirty-eight severely trimmed. Though modest in grade, this is a sizable original-owner collection with several notable highlights, perfect for the collector who wants real 1910-era cards without spending a fortune. The equivalent SMR value for just the four graded cards (factoring all four cards in at the lower whole-grade level) is $1,285. Total: 152 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++. SOLD FOR $3,900
