Incredible Collection of T-206 Cards to be featured in Company's Online
Fall Auction Starting in Mid-November
Laguna Niguel, Calif. (August 4, 2014) – SCP Auctions is proud to announce that company principals David Kohler and Dan Imler secured last week an astounding collection of more than 3,500 T-206 Cards from a private collector living in the northeast whose lineup included the incomparable Honus Wagner T-206, which was graded by Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA) on site at the 35th Annual National Sports Collectors Convention (NSCC) in Cleveland. "The Chesapeake Wagner" was on display all four days at the SCP Auctions booth at the Cleveland International Exposition Center.
"Unveiling a fresh T206 Honus Wagner card is a dream scenario for any hobby professional," said SCP Auctions Vice President Dan Imler, "and to have it be a part of such an immense and diverse find of previously unknown T206s, makes this one of the most exciting tobacco card finds in recent years."
In addition to this largely unknown specimen of the hobby's most legendary card, this astounding hoard of more than 3,500 raw T206's from 1909 to 1911 includes Eddie Plank as well as multiples of rarities such as Sherry Magie, Ray Demmitt, Bill O'Hara and others. Dozens each of Hall of Famers such as Ty Cobb, Christy Mathewson, Cy Young, Walter Johnson, et al are represented, including more than 50 different Cobbs. Rare backs and print variations abound. These cards will be featured as part of SCP Auctions' Fall 2014 Premier auction.
