Each card has been graded or assessed by SGC. Presented is a 113-card near set of S74 Colored Silks issued in 1911. Spared from the inherent doom of being sewn into a quilt or pillowcase, these captivating satiny survivors replicate that of the classic T205 set after which these are modeled. The precise, deep-brown line drawing used to recreate the portrayal, here, is well-preserved on these examples. All of the pieces lack their intact backpaper. Missing Daubert, Graham, Hoblitzell, Jones, Mitchell, Sheckard and Summers for completion.
