    1909-11 T206 White Borders Partial Set (360/521) With Many HoFers! Offered for the first time at auction is a 360-card partial set of T206 White Border tobacco cards. All backs display a Piedmont or Sweet Caporal reverse except for four Old Mill backs. The technical grades are a reflection of condition factors affecting the backs (i.e. pencil marks). This has left us with many cards that offer a visual appeal well above the strict technical assessment. In total, 33 cards have been graded by PSA. Includes: Graded - PSA EX-MT 6: 2 card, Gandil and Hummel; PSA EX+ 5.5: 2 cards, Baker and Jennings/Both Hands; PSA EX 5: 3 cards, Bender/Trees, Lajoie/Bat and Mathewson/Dark Cap; PSA VG-EX+ 4.5: 2 cards, Duffy and McGraw/Portrait with Cap; PSA VG-EX 4: 11 cards, Bresnahan/Portrait, Chance/Yellow, Clarke/Portrait, Johnson/Hands at Chest, Johnson/Portrait, Kleinow/Boston, Lajoie/Throwing, Marquard/Pitching, McGraw/Finger in Air, Young/Bare Hand and Young/Glove; PSA VG/EX 4 (MK): 7 cards, Bender/Portrait, Bresnahan/with Bat, Cobb/Bat Off, Cobb/Bat On, Cobb/Red Portrait, Jennings/One Hand and McGraw/Glove at Hip; PSA VG+ 3.5: 2 cards, Brown/Washington and Speaker; PSA VG 3: 3 cards, Bender/No Trees, Lundgren/Chicago and Mathewson/Portrait; PSA VG 3 (MC): 1 card, Joss/Pitching.
