1909-1911 T206 White Border Rarities PSA-Graded Collection Including Demmitt and O'Hara (8)
Starting Bid - $2,000, Sold For - $9,988
Collection of eight key rare cards from the popular T206 White Border series, highlighted by Demmitt, St. Louis, and O'Hara, St. Louis, each graded and encapsulated by PSA. Since the earliest days of organized collecting, these eight cards have been recognized as among the rarest in the T206 set, and are among the key cards that have always made completing a T206 set so difficult. 1) Ray Demmitt - St. Louis (VG 3. Bright and crisp, with evenly rounded corners, deep, rich colors, and well centered. Very clean for this card, just a couple light tobacco stains on the top border and a single tiny corner crease in the lower left, otherwise crease-free. The Polar Bear reverse is perfectly clean). 2) Bill O'Hara - St. Louis (VG 3. Attractive mid-grade example, with virtually perfect centering, evenly rounded corners, a few pinpoint hints of tobacco staining, and a few creases. The Polar Bear back is tobacco-stain free). 3) George Brown - Washington (VG-EX 4. Bright and clean, with even wear on the corners, flawless colors, and a light wrinkle visible on the reverse. Centered to the top right. Piedmont back). 4) Bill Dahlen - Brooklyn (EX-MT 6. Very attractive card, with a striking green background, centered to the top left. The reverse is perfectly clean with bold blue print. Piedmont back). 5) Kid Elberfeld - Washington, Port. (VG-EX 4. Centered to the top left, approximately 25/75 T/B, with even wear to the corners, no creases, and a striking red background. Old Mill reverse). 6) Red Kleinow - Boston (EX-MT 6. Centered to the top left, with light wear to three of the corners and heavier wear on the upper left. The image is slightly out of focus. We would grade this card Ex. Sweet Caporal advertisement on reverse. 7) Carl Lundgren - Chicago (VG-EX 4. Bold colors, flawless registration, and even wear to the corners. Centered to the left. Piedmont back). 8) Frank Smith - Chicago & Boston dual team designation variation (EX 5. Centered slightly to the bottom right, with light, square corners with just the slightest hint of wear. Upon close inspection there are two light surface wrinkles in the middle of the right border. The Old Mill advertisement on the back is off-center to the left approximately 20/80). All eight are strong cards with outstanding eye-appeal. The T206 set is universally recognized as the premier tobacco-card issue of the 1910 era. This is a very attractive collection of eight key rare cards from the highly prized T206 set. The SMR value for the assigned grades is $8,585. Total 8 cards. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000/$8,000. SOLD FOR $9,988
