Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $2,233
Presented is an unusual collection of eight different high-quality prewar cards, spanning the years 1910 to 1915, including representation from seven different highly regarded issues. Included are three Hall of Famers and several significant stars from some of the most desirable sets of the era. All eight cards have been graded and encapsulated by PSA or SGC. 1) 1910 T212 Obak “175 Subjects”: Ryan (PSA EX 5). 2) 1911 M116 Sporting Life: Magee (PSA EX-MT 6). 3) 1911 T205 Gold Border: Tinker (HOF, SGC VG/EX 50, centered slightly towards the top right with a touch of white showing at the corners). 4) 1911 T201 Mecca Double Folders: Lajoie/Falkenberg (HOF, PSA EX 5, bright and crisp with light wear on the corners; particularly sharp example for this set). 5) 1912 T202 Hassan Triple Folders: #132 Wheat/Dahlen (HOF, PSA VG-EX 4, appears Ex-Mt at a glance, appropriately downgraded due to tiny fold crimp and center vertical indentation line, both very minor flaws typical of T202s). 6) 1914 T213 – Type 2 Coupon Cigarette (2 cards): Byrne (SGC GOOD 30, harshly graded, solid Vg card!) and Doolan/Baltimore Fed. (fielding pose, SGC VG/EX 50, this card is a beauty and fatures an especially desirable Federal League player). 7) 1915 E145 Cracker Jack: #22 “Smokey” Joe Wood (PSA NM 7, factory-set fresh gem, bright and clean, with brilliant colors, four sharp corners, perfect centering, looks Nr/Mt-Mt). An interesting representation of quality samples from classic card issues from the 1910 to 1915 era including several Hall of Famers. Total 8 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $2,233
