Lot # 250 (of 1411)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1912 T207 Brown Background Collection (118) Assorted

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $8,700.00

Collection of 118 assorted T207 Brown Background (eighty-one different), all with Recruit backs (except five with Napoleon backs). This is a particularly crisp and clean collection with 45% grading from Vg-Ex to Ex, 55% grading Vg (a few slightly lesser). Includes twelve Hall of Famers: two Benders (both Vg), two Bresnahans (Vg-Ex and Vg), two Careys (Vg-Ex/Ex and Gd), Chance (Vg), Marquard (Gd), two McGraws (Vg/Vg-Ex and Vg), and two Tinkers (both Vg-Ex). Most have a stronger appearance than the technically accurate assigned grades, and have been downgraded due to the very light surface creasing that is characteristic of the issue. This is an impressive collection representing 40% of the set (plus duplicates), providing a strong foundation for collecting the set, and including most of the Hall of Famers in this classic tobacco-card issue. Total 118 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $8,700.00
