Circa 1910 T203 Mayo's Baseball Comics Complete Set (25)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,320

Collectors are naturally very familiar with the most classic baseball tobacco-card sets that are catalogued T201 (the Mecca double-folders), T202 (Hassan Triple Folders), T204 (Ramly Tobacco), etc. But what about T203? There really is a T203 set! Presented is a complete set of this amusing and very scarce 1910-era tobacco issue, which features cartoon-like drawings, illustrating various baseball phrases and terminology. These novelty cards were issued with Mayo Cut Plug tobacco products and measure approximately 2 1/6 x 3 1/8 inches. All cards present with bright colors and crisp illustrations. Condition is Very Good overall, with a few better and eight lesser. The T203 set is modestly valued compared to the sets that surround it in the American Card Catalog listings, simply because they do not feature specific players. But the set is baseball-related and certainly has a charm all its own! This is an extremely attractive and interesting complete set of this fascinating prewar-card issue. Total: 25 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $1,320
