T210 Old Mill Tobacco cards, along with E107s, N172 Old Judges, Colgans Chips, and a few other early sets, are among a small selection of elite sets that have long captured the imagination of many of the most legendary collectors, from the earliest days of serious collecting, perhaps more so in years past than even in recent times. The reason many great early collectors prized these cards so highly is twofold: 1) These sets could not (and cannot) simply be purchased in set form. They are rare. They have to be collected. They are a challenge. 2) Ultimately, cards are about the players that are featured. Many of the players in T210 (as well as other sets listed above) are featured in few or no other sets. These characteristics make the red-bordered T210 Old Mill set especially significant to the game of baseball and to the world of baseball cards, and especially appealing to the most sophisticated collectors. T210 Old Mill cards also have a very distinctive design with unique and very striking player poses. Total 86 cards. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000+. SOLD FOR $3,818.75
