30% range from Vg to Vg-Ex/Ex, 65% range from Fr to Gd-Vg (averaging Good), 5% lesser. This partial set of T206 White Borders is comprised of 451 of the 524 cards in the set. 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 Southern League series.
