Collection of twelve different cards from the classic T206 White Border series, each graded and encapsulated by SGC (submitted by REA) and featuring a Tolstoi advertising reverse. Tolstoi is a scarce back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and seen far less often than most other T206 advertising backs. This collection consists of the following: EX+ 5.5 (1 card): Gasper. EX 5 (4 cards): Doyle/N.Y., hands above head), Lord, Nichols/batting and Sheckard/glove showing. VG/EX+ 4.5 (5 cards): Ford, S. Hofman, Overall/hand face level, Schaefer/Washington and Smith/Chicago & Boston. VG/EX 4 (2 cards): McLean and Murphy/batting. Each card is bright and clean, with ideal advertising reverses. This is a very attractive and desirable collection of T206 White Border tobacco cards featuring the Tolstoi advertising reverse. The equivalent SMR value in the assigned grades (with no premium attached for the backs) is $1,860. Total: 12 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
