Description

One of the more intriguing issues of the tobacco card era belongs to the offered 1911 T201 Mecca Double Folders series of (50) cards. These oversized cards feature a full-size player action pose on the obverse with a smaller player image on the back. The design sequences are positioned so that the representations of each teammate could be arranged seamlessly. Highlights include: Bender/Oldring (VG), M. Brown/Hofman (VG-EX), Chase/Sweeney (VG), Cicotte/Thomas (VG), Clarke/Byrne (GD), E. Collins/Baker (VG), Crawford/Cobb (VG), Evers/Chance (GD), Huggins/Bresnahan (FR, surface pen mark), W. Johnson/Street (VG), Lajoie/Falkenberg (VG-EX), Lake/Wallace (VG), Mathewson/Bridwell (VG), McGinnity/McCarty (VG), Speaker/Gardner (FR, reverse pencil mark), Summers/Jennings (VG-EX), Walsh/Payne (EX) and Wheat/Bergen (GD). This condition sensitive series presents much better than technical grades would indicate with well concealed surface imperfections. The remaining folders generally present in the (VG) range.
