Listing Details

Perhaps the ultimate baseball card set, these almost could not be more popular among collectors. T206s were a true passion project for our consignor and his lovely wife. From the Northeast, they tirelessly went to shows, antique malls and auctions and anyplace else they could find tobacco cards. They amassed over 1,000 that are in this auction in various lots. The T206 was his pride and joy, and it was nearly complete before he sadly passed. The offered set was obtained over many decades and is mixed in grade. Condition was not a focus but there are some nice cards in the set. There are many slabbed cards here, presume the unslabbed cards including the Southern Leaguers mainly range from Poor-VG, averaging in the Good to GVG range or so.

The backs are fairly typical, although there are 15 Sovereigns including two 450 backs and five 150 backs. There are 10 Tolstois, 1 brown hindu, two American Beauties and assorted Old Mill and Polar Bears. The condition of the backs of the cards in general is very clean overall.
