    1909 T212 Obak Cigarettes Near Set (59/76). From a collection new to the hobby we offer a 59-card near set of the first Obak Cigarettes baseball cards. The overwhelming majority of these cards are found hand cut and this collection is not different. They have been passed down through family and are being made available for the first time. Some are cut small with thin borders, a few have borders missing. Hand cut status aside, about half of the cards present at the VG to EX range, others lesser. Some have back damage, just a few have heavy loss. Because of their scarcity, many opt for the much more common 1910 or 1911 Obak editions so this is a great chance to add to your collection cards that are missing from most vintage assemblies. Includes: Graded - SGC 30 Good 2: 2 cards, Dillon and Jansing; SGC 20 Fair 1.5: 1 card, Haley; SGC Authentic: 7 cards, Bodie, D. Lewis, Martinke, Mundorff, Ort, Reidy and Wiggs. Grades Authentic (all due to simply being hand cut) with a few FR to GD. See our web site for a detailed list of the contents of this collection.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
