DALLAS, Texas – The world’s largest sports collectibles auctioneer will present its third installment of hobby pioneer David Hall’s world-famous T206 collection in a 570-lot auction now open for bidding at HA.com/50021. The sale features a near-set of trading cards from the iconic T206 Tobacco Card set, each example bearing scarce “Sovereign” advertising on its back. The auction will close Jan. 16 in extended bidding format.
“It’s an enormous honor to have been selected by Mr. Hall to present this extraordinary assembly to the collecting community,” said Chris Ivy, Director of Sports Auctions at Heritage. “His role as founder and first CEO of Collectors Universe makes him arguably the most influential living figure in the hobby.”
Hall’s personal collection represents decades of careful curatorship. This challenging assembly of Sovereign-backed T206 cards will almost certainly never see an equal once its components are scattered to Heritage’s global bidding audience.
