Heritage Auctions Presenting The David Hall T206 Collection in a Series of Catalog Auctions in 2019 and BeyondCollection of more than 5,000 T206 cards represents the most comprehensive ever assembled.
The uniquely tailored marketing campaign for the equally unique collection includes a nationwide tour to Heritage's New York, Chicago and Beverly Hills offices, and then to sale on the industry's most heavily-trafficked website, HA.com.
Hall's T206 card collection holds the hobby's Holy Grails: Honus Wagner, Eddie Plank, Polar Bear Bill O'Hara (St. Louis) and ultra-rare variations, such as Ty Cobb with Cobb back, Ty Cobb Red Hindu and the only near-complete Sovereign set ever assembled.
"There's probably no single figure on the planet who has done more for my profession than David Hall," explained Chris Ivy, Director of Heritage Sports. "It's hard to imagine the sports collectibles industry without the authentication and grading structures Hall innovated. Every collector who has ever earned a dollar in this business owes him a debt of gratitude."
Hall's own passionate and deep research into the T206 issue has been essential for hobby scholarship. His work uncovered census data for players and advertising back combinations as well as previously unknown variations that are expected to garner record prices. His research has identified and helped lead to the acquisition of more than 5,000 different player/back combinations – a record that will likely stand for eternity long after the collection finds new owners during these high-profile auctions.
