1909-1911 T206 White Border Near-Complete Set (520 of 524)
Starting Bid - $5,000.00, Sold For - $22,040.00
25% range from Vg to Vg-Ex, 75% range from Fr to Gd-Vg. Near-complete 1909-11 T206 set (520 of 524), missing only Wagner, Plank, Magie, and Doyle/NY NL for completion. This set includes all other rarities (Demmitt, O'Hara, Elberfeld, etc.). The T206 set, of course, is also highlighted by literally dozens of Hall of Famers, including Ty Cobb, Cy Young, Nap Lajoie, Christy Mathewson, etc, as well as the scarce forty-eight-card Southern League series. Although in mixed grade, this is still a very pleasing set, with most cards having bright colors and crisp focus as originally issued.
