Presented is a 521-card near set (missing Doyle/N.Y. Nat'l, Plank and Wagner) of the most highly respected and widely collected 20th Century tobacco insert card release. The three-year T206 White Border production is without a doubt the building block of most, if not all, vintage card collections. The majority sport a "Piedmont" or "Sweet Caporal"-advertising reverse. Unless noted, the key cards have either a "Piedmont" or "Sweet Caporal"-advertising reverse. It should be noted that the "Magie" error has a large amount of paper stuck to the reverse and surface loss and would result in an "Authentic" assessment today. It's case also has a slight crack to it. In total, 38 cards have been graded by GAI or SGC. In total, 38 cards have been graded or assessed by GAI or SGC.
