1911 T201 Mecca Double Folders Complete Set (50)
Starting Bid - $1,500.00, Sold For - $4,060.00
11 cards are Ex, 12 cards Vg-Ex/Ex, 17 Vg-Ex, 6 Vg, 3 G, 1 lesser. This is an extremely attractive mid-grade complete set of this classic tobacco issue. Most cards which we have graded Vg-Ex or Vg-Ex/Ex appear Ex at a glance, and have been downgraded due to the minor flaws which are so common to the issue. The thin stock makes them especially susceptible to very light corner rounding. Keys: Baker/Collins (Vg-Ex/Ex), Bender/Oldring (Ex), Bergen/Wheat (Vg-Ex/Ex), Bresnahan/Huggins (Vg-Ex/Ex), Bridwell/Mathewson (Vg-Ex), Brown/Hofman (Ex), Byrne/Clarke (Vg due to tiny stain in extreme lower left corner, otherwise Ex), Chance/Evers (Gd due to two tiny pieces of clear tape on reverse, otherwise Vg-Ex), Chase/Sweeney (Vg-Ex/Ex), Cicotte/Thoney (Gd), Cobb/Crawford (Vg-Ex/Ex), Dougherty/Lord (Vg/Vg-Ex), Falkenberg/Lajoie (small punch hole otherwise Vg-Ex), Gardner/Speaker (Vg), Jennings/Summers (Vg-Ex), Johnson/Street (Vg-Ex), Lake/Wallace (Vg), McCarty/McGinnity (Vg-Ex), and Payne/Walsh (Vg/Vg-Ex). This set has great eye-appeal. T201s tend to wear very easily. Though not high-grade in an absolute sense, this set is far above average for Mecca Double Folders. A bright, clean and (with few exceptions) very consistent complete set of one of the era's most classic tobacco issues. The T201 set includes 20 Hall of Famers. Total 50 cards. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $2,500/$3,500. SOLD FOR $4,060.00
