A. Briggs Co.: Davis (SGC VG 40). This unusual assemblage represents the vintage "odds 'n' ends" of a fascinating collection spanning many eras that was consigned to this auction by an old-time collector. This is a fun collection of relatively affordable, mostly low-grade quality old cards with lots of variety and many highlights. Total 37 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $5,581
