An exceptional collection of important T206 cards, each boasting outstanding visual appeal, rich color, no creases, crisp borders, and sharp corners.  Each of the cards, however, has been graded A by SGC due to apparent trimming.  It should be noted that each of these cards were purchased ungraded from a prolific eBay seller that has long been the subject of hobby discussion for selling ungraded cards that appear strong, but are either trimmed or are overgraded by the seller.  These cards are gorgeous.  However, we are selling them for what they are - slightly trimmed cards that we submitted to SGC for verification that the cards were, indeed, trimmed.  This collection should serve as two different lessons at once.  The first lesson: buyer beware in this hobby; something that seems too good to be true probably is.  The second lesson, equally important: a slightly trimmed card can present the collector with outstanding value and tremendous eye appeal at a discount to much higher-graded cards.  This is a fantastic collection.  There is no need to lie about the condition of the cards, they look amazing, but unfortunately each has been slightly modified for whatever reason, likely to help improve their visual appeal.

Included in the collection are the following:  Chief Bender (HOF - Portrait, w/EPDG back), Hal Chase (Portrait, Pink Background), Doc Crandall (Portrait, with Cap), Bill Dahlen (Brooklyn), Roy Ellam (Old Mill Back), Chick Gandil, J. Ross Helm, Miller Huggins (HOF - Portrait), Addie Joss (HOF - Pitching), Addie Joss (HOF - Portrait), Red Kleinow (NY, w/Bat), Nap Lajoie (HOF - Portrait), John McGraw (HOF - Portrait, with Cap), John McGraw (HOF - Portrait, No Cap), Nap Rucker (Portrait), Germany Schaefer (Washington), Tris Speaker (HOF), Dolly Stark, James Westlake (Old Mill back), Hooks Wiltse (Potrait, No Cap).  20 beautiful cards total.
