1911 T201 Mecca Doublefolders Complete Set (50)
Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $8,050.00
Superb high-grade complete set. 10% Nr/Mt, 60% Ex to Ex-Mt, 30% Vg-Ex. This is a particularly sharp high-grade complete set for this classic tobacco issue. Cards which we have graded Vg-Ex appear Ex or better, and have been downgraded due to extremely minor flaws so common to the issue. The thin stock and foldover design of T201s make them especially susceptible to small creases as well as light corner wear. Keys: Baker/Collins (Nr/Mt), Bender/Oldring (Vg-Ex), Bergen/Wheat (Vg-Ex), Bresnahan/Huggins (Nr/Mt), Bridwell/Mathewson (Ex-Mt), Brown/Hofman (Ex-Mt), Byrne/Clarke (Ex-Mt), Chance/Evers (Ex), Chase/Sweeney (Vg-Ex), Cobb/Crawford (Ex), Dougherty/Lord (Ex-Mt), Falkenberg/Lajoie (Vg-Ex), Gardner/Speaker (Ex), Jennings/Summers (Ex), Johnson/Street (Ex), Lake/Wallace (Ex-Mt), Leach/Gibson (Ex), McCarty/McGinnity (Ex), Payne/Walsh (Ex), and Wiltse/Merkle (Ex). Exceptionally crisp, clean, and attractive complete set of Mecca Doublefolders, far superior to sets usually found, which is not surprising as this set was carefully assembled card by card, with only the finest example chosen, from a find of several hundred T201s in the early 1980s. Total 50 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500/$5,000. SOLD FOR $8,050.00
