Complete set of 1911 T201 Mecca Double Folders (fifty cards), all graded and encapsulated by PSA (17), SGC (22), or BVG (11). This is an extremely attractive 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 been downgraded only 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. 

The PSA grades are as follows: EX-MT 6 (2 cards): #9 Bresnahan/Huggins (HOF) and 18 (MC). EX 5 (3 cards): #5, 43 and 47. VG-EX 4 (2 cards): #34 and 42 Lake/Wallace (HOF, MK). VG 3 (4 cards): #7 Bergen/Wheat (HOF), 15 Cicotte/Thoney ("Black Sox", MC), 31 and 36 (MC). GOOD 2 (4 cards): #11 Brown/Hoffman (HOF), 17 Cobb/Crawford (HOF), 22 and 27. FAIR 1.5 (1 card): #20 (MK). POOR 1 (1 card): #30.

The SGC grades are as follows: EX/MT 6 (1 card): #33. EX+ 70 (2 cards): #44 and 50. EX 60 (2 cards): #16 and 25. VG/EX+ 55 (2 cards): #21 and 29. VG/EX 50 (2 cards): #37 and 45. VG+ 45 (2 cards): #8 and 48 Payne/Walsh (HOF). VG 40 (5 cards): #14 Chase/Sweeney, 23 Dougherty/Lord, 32 Gardner/Speaker (HOF), 38 and 39 Jennings/Summers (HOF). GOOD+ 35 (2 cards): #10 Bridwell/Mathewson (HOF) and 46 McCarty/McGinnity (HOF). GOOD 30 (4 cards): 29, 28 Falkenberg/Lajoie (HOF), 40 Johnson/Street (HOF) and 49.

The Beckett grades are as follows: EX+ 5.5 (1 card): #3. VG-EX 4 (1 card): #6 Bender/Oldring (HOF). VG+ 3.5 (4 cards): #1, 4, 19 and 35. VG 3 (2 cards): #13 Chance/Evers (HOF) and 24. GOOD+ 2.5 (1 card): #41. GOOD 2 (1 card): #2 Baker/Collins (HOF). FAIR 1.5 (1 card): #12 Byrne/Clarke (HOF).

This is an 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 total SMR value in the assigned grades (excluding the five qualified cards and factoring in the half-grades at the lower whole-grade level) is $3,317. Total: 50 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open).
