1911 T201 Mecca Double Folders Collection (77)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,900.00
Collection of 77 1911 T201 Mecca Double Folders includes one near-complete set of 44 different cards (out of 50 cards in the set) and 33 different duplicates. Highlighted by two Cobbs, two Mathewsons, and many other Hall of Famers. 1) T201 Near-Set (44 cards): Three cards grade Vg-Ex, thirty-eight cards range from Good to Vg (mostly Vg), three cards lesser grades. Missing the following six cards for completion (Bender/Oldring, Dougherty/Lord, Falkenberg/Lajoie, Gardner/Speaker, Johnson/Street, and Payne/Walsh). Keys: Baker/Collins (Vg), Bergen/Wheat (Fr), Bresnahan/Huggins (Gd), Bridwell/Mathewson (Gd-Vg), Brown/Hofman (Vg), Byrne/Clarke (Vg), Chance/Evers (Vg), Chase/Sweeney (Vg), Cicotte/Thoney (Gd-Vg), Cobb/Crawford (Vg), Jennings/Summers (Vg), Lake/Wallace (Gd-Vg), and McCarty/McGinnity (Gd). 2) T201 Partial-Set (33 cards): Six cards grade Vg and 27 cards are in Gd or slightly lesser condition. These cards are naturally prone to wear and rarely found in extremely high grade. Keys: Baker/Collins (Vg), Bridwell/Mathewson (Fr-Gd), Brown/Hofman (Gd), Byrne/Clarke (Gd), Chance/Evers (Fr-Gd), Chase/Sweeney (Gd), Cobb/Crawford (Gd-Vg), Jennings/Summers (Vg), and McCarty/McGinnity (Fr-Gd). Even in circulated condition T201s are very attractive, substantial, and represent one of the best values of all 1910 era baseball tobacco issues. This is part of an original-owner collection, consigned directly by the family of the gentleman who collected these cards as a youngster. Total 77 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,900.00
