1912 T202 Hassan Triple Folders PSA-Graded Collection (71)

Starting Bid - $2,500.00, Sold For - $11,162.50

Collection of seventy-one different (54% of a complete set) cards from this classic tobacco issue, highlighted by thirty Hall of Famers, including Ty Cobb, four Christy Mathewsons and two Walter Johnsons. All seventy-one cards have all been graded and encapsulated by PSA (unless otherwise noted). As anyone who has seen graded T202s can verify, T202s tend to be graded very harshly, and almost all of these cards have an appearance far superior to their assigned grades. In the following condition composite cards are identified by the numbers provided in the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards checklist. PSA Condition Report: One NM 7: #71 (OC). Thirteen EX-MT 6: #1 Wallace/LaPorte (HOF), 11, 15 Bresnahan/Harmon (HOF), 17, 47 Mathewson/Meyers (HOF), 59 Speaker/Engle (HOF), 61 Evers/Chance ([MK] HOF), 72 Lennox/Tinker (HOF), 97, 103, 109 (MC), 110 Huggins/Evans (HOF), and 132 Wheat/Dahlen (HOF). Twenty-three EX 5: #2 Pelty/Wallace (HOF), 12, 13, 16 Chance/Foxen (HOF, miscut; generously graded), 18, 24, 38 Clarke/Byrne (HOF), 40 Collins/Murphy (HOF), 41, 48, 55, 60 Evers/Archer (HOF), 73, 78, 84 Jennings/McGraw (HOF), 91, 98, 100 (SGC EX+ 70), 104 Chase/Wolter, 114 (SGC EX 60), 115 Barry/Baker (HOF), 116 Brown/Graham (HOF), and 118. Ten VG-EX 4: #10, 19, 29, 31 Bender/Thomas (HOF), 69, 75, 76 Cicotte/Stahl (Black Sox), 90 (Kling/Young, HOF, SGC VG/EX 50), 102, and 119. Twelve VG 3: #34, 42, 43 (SGC VG 40), 52, 68 Cobb/Moriarity ([MC] HOF), 80 (SGC VG 40), 83 Marquard/Meyers (HOF, SGC VG 40), 89 (SGC VG 40), 96, 105 Clarke/Miller (HOF, SGC VG 40), 124, and 125 Mathewson/Devlin (Giants, HOF). Eleven GOOD 2: #7, 9 Johnson/Street (HOF, SGC GOOD 30), 14 Bresnahan/Oakes (HOF, SGC FAIR 20), 20 Chance/Shean ([MK] HOF), 30 Baker/Barry (HOF, SGC GOOD 30), 44 Mathewson/Devlin (Giants, HOF), 66 (SGC GOOD 30), 86, 87 (MK), 88 Johnson/Knight (HOF), and 101 Griffith/McBride (HOF). One PR-FR 1: #85 Mathewson/Meyers (HOF). These cards have been graded harshly, as is the standard for T202s. This is a very bright, clean, attractive collection, appropriately downgraded to account for the technical flaws which are so common to the issue. This is a very substantial representation, and the foundation for the assembly of an extremely attractive set of T202 Hassan Triple Folders, arguably the most interesting and beautiful baseball tobacco issue ever produced. The SMR value for just the forty-six PSA EX-MT 6s, EX 5s, and VG-EX 4s (not including the twenty-five PSA NM 7 (OC), VG 3s, GOOD 2s, and PR-FR 1) is $10,740. Total 71 cards. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000/$10,000+. SOLD FOR $11,162.50
