1911 T201 Mecca Double Folders Complete Set (50)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,900.00
Twelve cards are Vg-Ex to Vg-Ex/Ex, thirty-seven cards are Vg, one card lesser. This is an extremely attractive mid-grade complete set of this classic tobacco issue. Most cards actually appear Ex or better 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), Bender/Oldring (Gd), Bergen/Wheat (Vg/Vg-Ex), Bresnahan/Huggins (Vg), Bridwell/Mathewson (Vg-Ex), Brown/Hofman (Vg-Ex), Byrne/Clarke (Vg-Ex), Chance/Evers (Vg), Chase/Sweeney (Vg), Cicotte/Thoney (Vg), Cobb/Crawford (Vg/Vg-Ex), Dougherty/Lord (Vg), Falkenberg/Lajoie (Vg-Ex), Gardner/Speaker (Gd), Jennings/Summers (Vg-Ex), Johnson/Street (Vg), Lake/Wallace (Vg), McCarty/McGinnity (Gd-Vg), and Payne/Walsh (Vg-Ex). This set has tremendous eye-appeal, far better than suggested by the technically accurate grades listed above. Bright, clean, and very consistent complete set of one of the era's most classic tobacco card issues. The T201 set includes twenty Hall of Famers. Total 50 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,900.00
