(LOT #1) T201 Mecca Double Folders PSA 5 Complete Set (#9 On the PSA Set Registry)

This set was put together with incredible attention to detail.  Very consistent PSA 5 grades with one PSA 6 (Odwell/Downs).  Due to the thin paper that these cards were printed on they are difficult to find in the condition as displayed with this set.  This set is consigned, and was added to the PSA Set Registry by 19thCenturyOnly prior to listing in this auction.  This set is ranked as #9 on the PSA set registry.
