T3s are big cards, which due to their large size tend to be more easily subject to corner wear and creases than smaller cards, and were also often tacked up walls, which is why pinholes are so common with this issue. This collection represents a very substantial start toward a very difficult to complete medium-grade set. Overall very consistent and reasonably uniform in grade throughout, with many cards having far superior eye-appeal than their technically accurate grades. Total 76 cards. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000/$8,000. SOLD FOR $15,080.00
