1909-1911 T206 White Border "American Beauty Backs" PSA-Graded Collection (10)
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $2,937.50
Collection of ten high-grade tobacco cards from the T206 White Borders series, including three Hall of Famers, each with the "American Beauty" tobacco advertisement on the reverse. American Beauty is a scarce back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and seen far less often than standard Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising backs. To find ten different cards, all with American Beauty backs, is very unusual. (Note: American Beauty back T205 and T206 cards are all naturally slightly narrower than cards with other advertising reverses.) All ten cards have been graded and encapsulated by PSA. The PSA grades are as follows: One NM 7: Pfeister/throwing. Four EX-MT 6: Jake Beckley (HOF), Flanagan, Hayden, and Maddox. Three EX 5: Chappelle, McGinley, and Vic Willis/bat (HOF). Two VG-EX 4: Joe Kelley (HOF) and Seymour/throwing. SMR value is $2,135. Total 10 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,937.50
