T206 Tobacco Baseball Cards PSA & SGC Collection

When you talk ‘ultimate set break’, it doesn't get much better than T206.  Not long ago, we were given the chance to sell a virtual complete set of the 1909-1911 tobacco card series that remains the hobby’s most popular and most iconic pre-World War II set.  We jumped at the opportunity. We've bought plenty of T206 singles and lots over the years but never have been able to offer a full set (minus the ‘big four’ scarcities) until now.  We've broken these into several auctions but this week’s listings include some dandies. We were so excited about the prospect of offering this incredible accumulation of 520 cards that we created a video showing you the set and offering some insight into this one-per-cigarette pack issue that attracts such a following today. This week, we have well over 100 cards from this acquisition up for bid on eBay including several Hall of Famers, a lot of recognizable names and some very tough cards, all with low starting bids. You’ll find a rare Bill Dahlen (Piedmont back), plus cards of Christy Mathewson, Walter Johnson, Johnny Evers, Sam Crawford and many others.  There are big leaguers and also some Southern Leaguers among our huge selection of lots. The grades of these are in the ‘very affordable’ range; respectable cards but lower technical grades which means they're nice looking specimens that aren't likely to set you back an arm and a leg.  For those building sets, it’s a great way to knock a bunch off of your want list at one time. While the high profile cards are generating strong bids and collectors are chasing many of the others to fill out sets, some of the common T206s carry only a couple of bids so this may be a great opportunity to jump in on the T206 set if you've not done so.  Be careful, though.  Most people get hooked once they acquire their first T206! Don't forget our terrific collection of Zeenuts PCL cards this week, too, along with the usual wide array of graded cards from all different
