    1909-11 T206 White Border Tobacco Near Set (521). Every T206 collector has an approach or style when accepting the challenge of putting together this enormous undertaking. This consignor did the work for someone and all they have to do now is enjoy. From beginning to end, the thrill of going through card after card - 521 of them in this case - just never fails to tweak the imagination. This set is missing the 'Big Four' Plank, Wagner, Doyle and 'Magie' error. Adding a special layer of appreciation is the fact that over 75 cards display a scarcer tobacco brand including Tolstoi and Hindu-Brown. A total of 54 cards have been graded by SGC.
