1909-1911 T206 Southern Leaguer PSA Collection (41)
Starting Bid - $1,500, Sold For - $7,110
Collection of forty-one different scarce T206 Southern Leaguers (out of the 48 cards which comprise the entire “Southern League” subset), highlighted by a particularly strong example of key card Shag Shaughnessy, each graded and encapsulated by PSA (all have been personally submitted to PSA over the past couple years by our consignor, now 87 years old, who collected back in the 1970s). One card is graded EX-MT+ 6.5, one is EX-MT 6, two are EX+ 5.5, ten are EX 5, six are VG-EX+ 4.5, eight are VG-EX 4, two are VG+ 3.5, two are VG 3, two are GOOD 2, and seven are Authentic (all rejected by PSA for evidence of trimming). All have Piedmont advertising backs unless otherwise noted. The collection is comprised of the following: Bastian - San Antonio (trimmed), Bay - Nashville (trimmed), Bernhard - Nashville (VG-EX 4), Breitenstein - New Orleans (VG-EX 4), Carey - Memphis (VG-EX+ 4.5), Cranston - Memphis (VG-EX+ 4.5), Ellam - Nashville (VG-EX 4), Fritz - New Orleans (EX 5), Greminger - Montgomery (trimmed), Guiheen - Portsmouth (trimmed), Hart - Little Rock (EX 5), Hart - Montgomery (EX 5), Hooker - Lynchburg (GOOD 2), Jordan - Atlanta (VG 3), Kiernan - Columbia (trimmed), King - Danville (EX+ 5.5, Old Mill), LaFitte - Macon (EX 5), Lentz - Little Rock (VG+ 3.5), Lipe - Richmond (GOOD 2, Old Mill), Manion - Columbia (VG-EX 4), McCauley - Portsmouth (VG-EX 4), Miller - Dallas (EX 5, Old Mill), Molesworth - Birmingham (VG-EX+ 4.5), Mullaney - Jacksonville (EX 5, Old Mill), Orth - Lynchburg (VG-EX 4, Old Mill), Otey - Norfolk (VG-EX 4), Perdue - Nashville (VG 3, Old Mill), Persons - Montgomery (EX 5), Reagan - New Orleans (EX 5), Revelle - Richmond (VG-EX+ 4.5), Rockenfeld - Montgomery (EX+ 5.5), Ryan - Roanoke (VG-EX+ 4.5), Seitz - Norfolk (EX 5), Shaughnessy - Roanoke (VG+ 3.5, Old Mill), Smith - Shreveport (VG-EX 4), Stark - San Antonio (VG-EX+ 4.5), Thebo - Waco (EX 5), Thornton - Mobile (trimmed, Old Mill), Violat - Jacksonville (trimmed, Old Mill), Westlake - Danville (EX-MT+ 6.5, Old Mill), and White - Houston (EX-MT 6). The Southern Leaguers have always been appreciated for their scarcity and as a popular subset to the T206 series. Collectors find it particularly challenging to assemble a complete set. This is a very impressive looking group, with most cards having an appearance superior to their technically accurate assigned grades. The SMR value for thirty-four of the forty-one cards from the group (not including the seven trimmed cards) is $7,180. Total: 41 cards. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000/$5,000+. SOLD FOR $7,110
