Exceptional collection of eleven examples of Hall of Famer Vic Willis (with bat) from the T206 White Border set, each featuring a different advertising reverse. A total of fifteen different advertising reverses exist for the Willis (with bat) card, eleven of which are presented in this lot and four others, to complete the run, appear individually in this auction due to their extreme rarity. This collection consists of the following: American Beauty 350 No Frame (PSA GOOD 2), Cycle 460 (PSA PR 1), El Principe de Gales (PSA VG-EX 4), Old Mill (SGC EX 60), Piedmont 350 Factory 25 (PSA VG-EX 4), Piedmont 350/460 Factory 25 (SGC GOOD 30), Polar Bear (PSA VG-EX 4), Sovereign 350 (SGC VG 40), Sweet Caporal 350 Factory 30 (SGC VG 40), Sweet Caporal 350/460 Factory 42 (PSA VG 3), and Tolstoi (PSA VG 3). Each card is bright and crisp, with the important reverses presenting extremely well and as ideal samples for an advertising-back collection. This is a superb assembly of this classic card featuring eleven of the fifteen advertisements with which the card can be found. The total SMR value in the assigned grades (with no premium added for the scarcer backs) is $1,540. Total: 11 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000+.
