Presented is a near-complete set of forty-seven different T206 Southern Leaguers (out of the forty-eight cards which comprise the entire “Southern League” subset), each graded and encapsulated by SGC (submitted by REA). Missing only Ryan for completion. Twenty-six cards have Old Mill advertising backs (noted below); the balance feature Piedmont backs. SGC Grading Composite: VG 3 (4 cards): Guiheen, Hart/Little Rock (Old Mill), Mullaney (Old Mill) and Reagan (Old Mill). GOOD+ 2.5 (9 cards): Coles, Ellam (Old Mill), King (Old Mill), Lipe (Old Mill), Miller/Dallas (Old Mill), Otey, Paige (Old Mill), Westlake and White/Houston. GOOD 2 (13 cards): Bastian (Old Mill), Bay, Breitenstein, Fritz (Old Mill), Helm (Old Mill), Lafitte, McCauley (Old Mill), Perdue, Revelle, Rockenfeld, Seitz, Stark (Old Mill) and Violat. FAIR 1.5 (10 cards): Bernhard (Old Mill), Foster (Old Mill), Hickman, Howard/Savannah (Old Mill), Jordan/Atlanta, Kiernan, Lentz (Old Mill), Persons (Old Mill), Shaughnessy (Old Mill) and Thornton. POOR 1 (10 cards): Carey (Old Mill), Greminger (Old Mill), Hart/Montgomery, Hooker, Manion (Old Mill), Molesworth, Orth (Old Mill), Smith/Shreveport (Old Mill), Smith/Atlanta (Old Mill) and Thebo. Authentic (1 card): Cranston (Old Mill). Every card in this collection is extremely attractive, and even the lesser-graded examples present at a level far superior to their assigned grades. 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 in very desirable grades. The equivalent SMR value for forty-six of the cards (not including the one card encapsulated "Authentic" and factoring in the half grades at the lower whole-grade level) is $2,210. Total: 47 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/2,000+.
