1910 T209 Contentnea First Series Complete Set (16)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $4,994
Extremely rare complete sixteen-card set of 1910 T209 Contentnea First Series cards. This is a very attractive low- to mid-grade set of these extremely striking 1910-era tobacco cards featuring players from the Virginia League, Carolina Association, and Eastern League. Three cards have been graded and encapsulated by SGC (all submitted by REA). Condition composite: three cards are Vg: Fullenwider, Lane (SGC VG 40), and Stubbe; three cards grade Good: Hoffman, McGeehan, and Walsh (SGC GOOD 30, factory rubber stamp "Factory No. 12, 4th Dist. N.C." on the reverse); ten cards technically grade Fair or Fr-Gd but in most cases have a far superior appearance (all are still very nice looking cards): Armstrong, Booles, Bourquise, Cooper (SGC POOR 10; far superior appearance; we grade this card higher), Cowell, Crockett, Gilmore, Pope, Martin (possible very slight top border trim), and Sisson. Don't be fooled by the low technical grades. This is a great-looking set! Every card is bright and crisp, with vibrant colors, and flawless registration. T209 Contentnea First Series cards are rarely offered as a complete set, and are highly prized by both minor-league collectors and tobacco-card collectors. Total: 16 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $4,994
