#1, T206 Near Complete Set (520 of 524) including rare Demmitt and O'Hara
5% range from Vg to Vg-Ex, 45% range from Gd to Gd-Vg, 50% range from Pr to Fr-Gd (includes a few with slight trim).
Near-complete 1909-1911 T206 set (520 of 524), missing only Wagner, Plank, Magie and Doyle NY Nat'l for completion.
The T206 set is highlighted by seventy-four Hall of Famers, including four Ty Cobb cards, three Christy Mathewsons,
two Walter Johnsons, three Cy Youngs, as well as many rarities. This set includes the rare St. Louis varieties of Demmitt
and O'Hara, and the scarce forty-eight-card Southern League series. This is an outstanding
opportunity to acquire a very attractive complete set of T206, the premier 1910-era tobacco-card set, without spending
the fortune that this set would cost in a higher grade, or the considerably higher amount that it would almost certainly
cost to put this set together one card at a time. Although in mixed grade, this is still a very pleasing and extremely
impressive set, with most cards having bright colors and crisp focus as originally issued. Ten different tobacco
advertising brands are represented in this set (including Brown Hindu, American Beauty, Cycle, Sovereign, El Principe De
Gales, Tolstoi, and Polar Bear).
