1068 Assorted T206 White Border Cigarette Cards

Unfortunately, most of the photos in Sotheby’s Important Baseball Cards and Sports Memorabilia auction catalog from March 1993 are B&W, but this group of 1068 assorted T206 White Border Cigarette Cards still looks pretty awesome.

You don’t see lots like these often these days, especially since this one included 124 Hall of Famers. The lot contained various manufacturers, but mostly Piedmont and Sweet Caporal brands. Sotheby’s said no cards were less than Vg, and as a lot, the overall grade would be at least Ex, with more than 200 cards in at least NrMt or better condition. Their estimate was $25-30k.
