Collection of fifty-two different Hall of Famers (plus two duplicates) from the T206 White Borders series. There are only seventy-six Hall of Famers (including Wagner and Plank) in the entire T206 set. This is a tremendous start to a complete set of this extremely significant subset. All cards have Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertisements on reverse unless otherwise noted. We have selected seven cards for grading and encapsulation by SGC. The collection consists of the following: Baker (VG/EX 4), Bender/no trees (Vg), Bender/trees (Vg), Bender/portrait (Gd+, Sovereign 150), Bresnahan/portrait (Pr), Bresnahan/batting (Vg), Brown/Chicago (Gd, Polar Bear), Brown/Cubs (Fr), Brown/portrait (GOOD+ 2.5), Chance/batting (tip of bottom right corner missing, otherwise Vg), Clarke/batting (Gd+), Clarke/portrait (Fr), E. Collins (Fr due mostly to erased pencil), J. Collins (Pr), Crawford/throwing (Vg), Crawford/with bat (trimmed, otherwise Pr due to paper loss on reverse), two G. Davis (Vg and pencil on reverse, otherwise Ex), Duffy (Vg), Evers/Chicago Vg), two Evers/Cubs (VG/EX+ 4.5 and Pr), Griffith/batting (Vg), Griffith/portrait (Vg), Huggins/hands at mouth (Vg+), Huggins/portrait (slight miscut, otherwise Vg), Jennings/one hand (Gd, Polar Bear), Jennings/two hands (Pr, American Beauty 350), Jennings/portrait (Vg+), Johnson/portrait (POOR 1), Joss/hands at chest (Pr), Joss/portrait (GOOD+ 2.5), Keeler/portrait (Gd), Keeler/with bat (Gd), Lajoie/with bat (FAIR 1.5), Marquard/hands at side (Fr), Marquard/pitching (Vg, Polar Bear), Marquard/portrait (Vg), Mathewson/white cap (GOOD 2), McGraw/finger in air (Gd), McGraw/glove at hip (Fr, Polar Bear), McGraw/no cap (Vg), McGraw/cap (pencil mark, otherwise Fr-Gd), Speaker (name visible on bottom and partially visible on top, otherwise Vg), Tinker/bat off shoulder (Fr), Tinker/bat on shoulder (Vg), Tinker/hands on knees (Gd, Sovereign 350), Tinker/portrait (Fr), Waddell/portrait (Gd+), Waddell/throwing (trimmed, otherwise Vg-Ex+), Wallace (Vg), Walsh (Pr), Wheat (Fr) and Willis/portrait (Fr). This is a very attractive mid- to low-grade collection of Hall of Famers from the most popular and classic set of the era. The equivalent SMR value for the seven SGC-graded cards is $1,295. Total: 54 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500+.
