Description

Long before sheets and top loaders were devised to protect our cardboard treasures, the standard method of storage in the hobby was to affix cards into period scrapbooks. For the better part of a century these (250) 1909-11 T206 White Borders were concealed in a period ledger. The tiny renderings from this family heirloom are neatly arranged on (5) five-card rows, totaling fifty cards on each of the five double-sided sheets. Moderate splitting between cards on two pages along with the majority being neatly overlapped does not diminish the remarkable eye appeal. These keepsakes are largely crease-free with well-defined corners and edges along with stunning obverse hues. Slight evidence of glue residue is present on each sheet. Keys include Hall of Famers/Southern Leaguers: (32 Hall of Famers, 1 Southern Leaguer) with Beckley, M. Brown (Cubs on Shirt), Clarke (with Bat), (3) E. Collins, Flick, Griffith (Portrait), Hart (Little Rock), (2) Joss (Portrait), (2) Keeler (with Bat), Lajoie (Portrait), (4) Lajoie (Throwing), (2) Marquard (Portrait), Mathewson (Portrait), (2) Mathewson (White Cap), McGinnity, McGraw (Portrait, no Cap), Speaker, Tinker (Hands on Knees), Waddell (Throwing) and (3) C. Young (Bare Hand Shows). It has yet to be determined what advertising backs are found on the cards or whether they can be professional removed from the approximately 7-1/2 x 13” sheets.
