1915 T214 Victory Tobacco Dots Miller - Previously Uncataloged!

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,320

Presented is an outstanding, previously uncataloged T214 Victory Tobacco example of Dots Miller of the St. Louis Cadinals. This set is sometimes mistaken for the T206 White Border set and is closely related, sharing the same designs. The 1915 T214 Victory set, issued exclusively in the Louisiana area, is one of the great legendary rarities of tobacco-card collecting. Even a sample card from this set is a challenge to find. Victory Tobacco is one of the few sets which features players from the Federal League, in addition to players from the Major Leagues. This is a particularly attractive card in all respects, and simply superior to what is normally found for Victory Tobacco. Encapsulated as Authentic by SGC (submitted by REA) due to a slight irregular cut along the bottom edge, the card speaks for itself despite the technical grade, and it is easy to see that this is a magnificent T214 example. Victory Tobacco cards have a glossy coated surface which is very susceptible to creasing. This card has a virtually flawless surface, vibrant colors, and light, even wear on the corners. The reverse is almost entirely clean, with only some faint staining on the extreme right border. The advertisement is bold, with crisp black print, ideal qualities for a sample of this rare issue, as the back is so important. Very Good to Excellent overall appearance. T214 Victory Tobacco cards are rare in any grade, let alone such an exceptionally strong and attractive example of a previously uncataloged subject. This is a tremendous rarity that would be a significant addition to any T214 Victory Tobacco, advanced prewar, or type-card collection. Reserve $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,320
