Complete set of 1911 T201 Mecca Double Folders (fifty cards), all graded and encapsulated by PSA with the exception of five graded by SGC, which are noted below. This is an extremely attractive mid-grade complete set of this classic tobacco issue. The condition of this complete set spans several grades, and most of the lesser-graded cards appear far superior than suggested by their technically accurate grades and have only been downgraded due to the minor flaws that are so common to the issue. The thin stock on which T201s are printed makes them especially susceptible to very light corner rounding and surface wrinkles.

In the following condition composite, identifying card numbers are referenced from the numbers provided by the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards checklist. PSA Grading Composite: EX-MT 6 (2 cards): #2 Baker/Collins (SGC, HOF) and 43. EX 5 (10 cards): #5, 7 Bergen/Wheat (HOF), 13 Chance/Evers (HOF), 18, 20, 33, 34, 36, 37, and 42 Lake/Wallace (SGC, HOF). VG-EX+ 4.5 (4 cards): #22, 26, 27 (SGC), and 39 Jennings/Summers (HOF). VG-EX 4 (12 cards): #6 Bender/Oldring (HOF), 9 Bresnahan/Huggins (HOF), 10 Bridwell/Mathewson (HOF), 11 Brown/Hofman (HOF), 12 Byrne/Clarke (HOF), 17 Cobb/Crawford (HOF), 31, 40 Johnson/Street (SGC, HOF), 41 (MK), 46 McCarty/McGinnity (HOF), 47 (MC), and 49. VG+ 3.5 (2 cards): #19 and 29. VG 3 (8 cards): #3, 4, 23 Dougherty/Lord, 25, 28 Falkenberg/Lajoie (HOF), 30, 44 (SGC), and 50. GOOD+ 2.5 (3 cards): #1, 14 Chase/Sweeney, and 32 Gardner/Speaker (HOF). GOOD 2 (6 cards): #8, 15 Cicotte/Thoney ("Black Sox"), 21, 24, 38, and 45 (MK). FAIR 1.5 (2 cards): #16 and 48 Payne/Walsh (HOF). POOR 1 (1 card): #35.

This is an exceptionally clean and attractive complete set of Mecca Double Folders. The T201 Mecca Double Folders set includes twenty Hall of Famers and is arguably one of the best values of all 1910 tobacco-card issues. This is an incredible opportunity to acquire an outstanding mid-grade complete set of this classic tobacco-card issue with many exceptional highlights. The SMR value in the assigned grades for forty-seven of the graded cards is $4,691 (excluding the three qualified cards). Total: 50 cards. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000+.
