Highlights include 1888 Scrapps Die-Cuts: (1 card) with Robinson (PR); 1909-1911 T206 White Borders: (51 cards, 14% VG to EX, 45% GD, 23% FR, 8% PR, 10% trimmed) with Beckley (GD), Chance (FR, Red Portrait), Chase (FR, Pink Portrait, El Principe De Gales), F.

The surfaces of many T206 examples appear much nicer than the assigned grade would suggest, but are graded as such due to reverse paper pulling from a photo album.
