1909-11 T206 Sovereign Back Baseball Cards
The T206 set is often considered to be the most famous Pre-War set in existence. The cards measure 1 7⁄16" x 2 5⁄8" inches which is considered by many collectors to be the standard tobacco card size.
T206 Baseball Cards can be found with various backs, based on the company whose product they were sold with. Cards with the Sovereign Back are not extremely difficult to find but are not considered common. For this reason, cards with Sovereign Backs command a slight premium over common back T206s, and the average T206 "white borders" collector might end up with a few in their collection.
Some of the key Hall-of-Famers known to be included with an Sovereign back are the: T206 Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, Addie Joss, Nap Lajoie, Christy Mathewson, John McGraw and Cy Young.
