The cards in this collection vary in overall appeal (as is common for cards graded at these levels), but many of these cards are extremely pleasing and have only been downgraded due to faults on the reverse. This is a very impressive group that could serve as a substantial foundation for the assembly of a complete T206 set. The fact that all are encapsulated by PSA (and, due to their modest technical grades, are relatively affordable) makes this a particularly noteworthy collection. The total SMR value for just 135 of the cards (factoring in the twenty-seven half-grades at the lower whole-grade level and not including the thirty qualified cards or the eight cards graded Authentic) is $3,054. Total: 173 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $4,200
