    1910 T212 Obak Cigarettes Complete Set (175). DESCRIPTION CORRECTION: There are five cards graded SGC 30 Good 2.

    Offered is a 175-card complete set of T212 Obak Cigarettes baseball cards from 1910. That is a sentence one rarely reads in an auction catalog. The Obak series are as famous for their rich color pallets and finely detailed portraits as they are for their noticeable scarcity compared to other tobacco editions lie the T205 and T206 series. Thanks to the "Obak" promotions, this was the lone opportunity for many of these PCL athletes to appear on a baseball card and they are a great addition to any vintage card collection. The 1910 edition is particularly appealing thanks to the glossy that really brings out the vivid hues. This set came to Heritage from a collection from the West Coast and are being offered for the first time. Many cards present nicer than the technical grades suggests as cards may have a small pencil number in the top border (front) and/or some reverse surface loss. Other cards may have some loss (light to heavy) or glue residue on the reverse as well. Includes: Graded - SGC 40 VG 3: 3 cards, Browning, Speas and Thompson; SGC 30 Good 2: 5 cards, Breen, Brown/Vancouver, Kenner, Killilay and Nourse/Stamp; SGC 20 Fair 1.5: 5 cards, Brinker, Brown/Sacramento, Hartman, Stevens and Swain. Grades PR to GD with a few nicer and a few hand cut, one is incomplete.
