1912 T202 Hassan Triple Folders Partially Complete Set (97 of 132)

Starting Bid - $2,000.00, Sold For - $40,600.00

The beautiful lithography, the great number of stars represented, and the unique design of T202 Hassan Triple Folders combine to make it one of the most highly regarded of all baseball card sets of the era. Offered is a near-complete set of this classic tobacco card issue (97 different cards) missing just 35 cards for completion. Included are two Ty Cobbs, four Christy Mathewsons, Walter Johnson, Tris Speaker, and literally dozens of stars and additional Hall of Famers. The 35 cards missing for completion are #9 Johnson/Street, 36 Speaker/Wood, 45 Devlin-Rustlers/Mathewson, 46 Fletcher/Mathewson, 59 Engle/Speaker, 64 Chance/Tinker, 65 Cobb/O'Leary, 68 Cobb/Moriarity, 79 Bresnahan/McGraw, 84 Jennings/McGraw, 85 Mathewson/Meyers, 107 Engle/Speaker, 125 Devlin-Giants/Mathewson, 130 Cobb/Moriarity and commons #12, 13, 23, 26, 27, 28, 32, 52, 58, 62, 63, 74, 89, 92, 93, 108, 109, 112, 120, 122, 123. T202s are unnumbered. In the following condition composite, identifying card numbers are referenced from the numbers provided by the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards checklist. We have selected twenty-five cards to be graded by PSA. Please note that PSA is notoriously hard on T202s due to the "spider creases" which naturally occur along the folds of the side panels, as well as roller marks that are so common to the issue. These natural manufacturing flaws result in particularly harsh grading by PSA. The offered near-set has superior eye-appeal, with virtually all cards presenting far nicer than suggested by their technically accurate grades.
