"Shoebox" collection of seventy-three T206 White Borders (mostly different, includes a few duplicates) includes an impressive twenty Hall of Famers. 49% grade Vg, 17% range from Gd to Gd-Vg, 34% lesser grades. Keys: Baker (Tolstoi back, Fr), Bresnahan/bat (American Beauty back, Vg), Brown/Chicago (Vg), Brown/port. (Pr), two Chance/port. (both Vg), two Clarke/port. (Vg and Pr), Duffy (Vg), Evers/port.

This is a neat group of cards from "the olden days," with some cards a little rough but still very collectable, and ideal for the collector who does not want to spend a fortune, buts wants real, original circa 1910 tobacco cards which capture the spirit of the history of the game and collecting. This is a totally unpicked collection of low-to-mid grade T206s with an extremely high concentration of Hall of Famers. Backs almost all Sweet Caporal, but also included are samples of several other brands. Total 73 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $3,770.00
