1909 Original Carl Horner Studio Cabinet Photo with T206 Sherry Magee sold for $6,600
Mastro Auctions (December 2008)
Mastro Auctions sold a 1909 Original Carl Horner Studio Cabinet Photo with T206 Sherry Magee for $6,600
in December 2008 auction.
The following was the auction description:
Offered is a circa 1909 cabinet photo, from the studio of Carl Horner, picturing Philadelphia Phillies outfielder
Sherry Magee. Magee's smiling visage is the same portrayal used for the famed T206 White Border tobacco insert card
of 1909-11. The sepia photograph's 3-7/8" x 5-1/2" image area merits EX/MT display properties with a few instances
of foxing on the surface gloss. Its 5-1/4" x 7-1/4" mount carries an impeccably bold "Horner-Jordan Co." emblem and,
on the back, a hologram sticker from the celebrated 1996 Baseball Magazine archives auction is affixed; the mount's
presentation quality is about EX, with a small corner chip at the upper left and spots of staining on the reverse.
A "finished," as-issued example of Magee's T206 card (VG/EX, "Piedmont - 150 Subjects" back) accompanies.
Final bid (with 20% premium): $6,600
