T205 Find from Buckhead, Georgia
7. T205 Find from Buckhead, Georgia  
.
.September 7, 2017
.
Roughly 410 T205's (along with 468 T206's) were found in late 2016 in a neatly packed tin- inside a steamer trunk in Buckhead, Georgia. They are some of the most beautiful gold border cards we have ever seen.

We thought it would interesting to show the cards from this find grouped by player and display how many duplicates were found.

Every card had a Piedmont back with many of them being Piedmont 42's.

Take time to look at the Walter Johnson cards, you will find the overall grade of these cards pretty amazing. In our opinion the Cobb 70 is the the epitome of a T205 Gold Border!

As a T205 collectors, we find it fascinating studying who and how many cards of a particular player were issued and distributed from a particular tobacco brand.

How many times do modern collectors open a box and get duplicates of the same player?

I'm sure just like today... the 1911 buyers of these Piedmont cigarette packs may have been bummed to receive numerous duplicates.

I mean how many Latham, Bris Lord and Phelps cards did the Piedmont smoker need?

Enjoy this unique find.

The family who discovered them gave them to an antique dealer in Roswell, Georgia to sell.

He contacted SGC and had them graded.

I am pleased to say our personal favorite and keeper is a Dolly Gray -Stats SGC 84. A true gem!

When looking at these beautiful cards. It really is amazing that so many earned a high grade after so many years sitting unprotected in a tin within the trunk.

Some variations and short prints were found, but not too many.


Thanks,

Matt and Turner

In somewhat of a extremely hard to difficult order.
The number beside the card is the SGC Power Rating

Good luck to those just starting
the beautiful T205 set.

Some cards are just plain tough to add to your set in a decent condition.

Buy the short prints first and Hall of Famers last.

Turner and I have worked on this set for the past 12 years.
