    1909-11 T206 White Border Near Set (518) With Rare Brands, Series 350 Lundgren/Chi. and Old Mill Printing Error. This set comes to us from a hobby veteran who sold his vast card collection many years ago to focus on memorabilia. He decided to keep one set. His T206 set. Upon reading that, I am sure fans of this series now have that, "Yes, I know how he feels" smile on their face. T206s have taken on the role of not just another card promotion but have become the focal point of a collection regardless of how large. They have become the corner stone that many new vintage card collectors build upon. This presentation isn't "mint" and the big four need to be added later (Magie and Plank reside in the holdings of others) but like every assembly it holds a charm and character all its own. The technical grades are a reflection of condition factors affecting the backs like ink, a stamp and surface loss. This has left us with many cards that offer a visual appeal well above the strict technical assessment. In addition to the dozens of Hall of Famers, scarce Demmitt and O'Hara variations, some highlights include a pair of Hindu backs (one a SL); fifteen Southern Leaguers with Old Mill backs; a rare Thorton/SL with a intriguing reverse printing error and a very rare Carl Lundgren/Chicago with a Piedmont 350 series back!
