This is a very impressive group that could serve as a substantial foundation for a high-quality T206 collection, or make a significant contribution to the completion of a an extremely high-quality set. The fact that all are in the identical grade, a grade which many believe offers one of the very best values for cards from the classic T206 series, makes this is a particularly noteworthy collection. This is an unusually large collection of quality T206 cards in the same grade to be offered as a collection. The equivalent SMR value in the assigned grades is $3,516. Total: 71 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000++. SOLD FOR $3,300
