Description

Compiled are (21) low-grade T206 cards that include (16) Polar Bear backs and (5) Sweet Caporal reverses. The most recognizable card in this offering is the revered Sweet Caporal Cy Young (Portrait, back damage, PR) that presents well on the front despite its graded condition. The bold blue Polar Bear backs, which are considered slightly more valuable than other brand reverses from this issue, also make this collection a seductive opportunity for any connoisseur of the celebrated T206 series. The cards offered in this lot include: Polar Bear: Abbaticchio (Blue Sleeves), Ames (Hands above head), Berger, Dougherty (Arm In Air), B. Graham, Hofman, Konetchy (Glove Near Ground), Maddox, Meyers, Oakes, Payne, Pelty (Vertical), Rhoades (Right Arm Extended), J. Sweeney, Warhop, Willis (With Bat); Sweet Caporal: Abstein, Demmitt (New York), Lake (St. Louis, ball in hand) and Willis (Portrait). It should be noted that the Polar Bear backs suffer from mild to moderate staining, as these cards were originally packed with loose tobacco. All but (1) of the Sweet Caporal cards in this lot exhibit back damage.
