T202 Hassan Triple Folders Overview

In 1911, it was the T201 Mecca Double Folders set that excited collectors. In 1912? A third layer was added to create the T202 Hassan Triple Folders set.

The T202 cards folded to make three distinct cards. The outer edge panels folded inside and were half the size of the middle panel. On each exterior edge were individual color portraits – the same ones as in the popular T205 set. Almost all players with cards using that design were included in the T205 issue. The lone exceptions were Smoky Joe Wood and Walt Blair, who were new additions.

Speaking of new additions, the set was sort of thrust into the spotlight back in 2010 when research led to the discovery of Joe Jackson in the set. The ‘Lord Catches His Man’ card, featuring a baserunner being thrown out was mostly determined to be a card featuring Jackson, who did not appear in the T202 set otherwise. The card is now recognized as one featuring the former White Sox star.

In the middle was a black and white picture of an action shot. Some of the middle photos included one of the two players on the outside but others did not. Backs of all cards included the Hassan logo and player biographies.

Collectors will find these both fully intact or with the cards separated individually. Because of the images from the T205 set, the cards on the outside edges can sometimes be confused as T205 cards. But they are different in several ways – most notably, the T202 cards have white borders while the T205 cards have gold borders. In addition, the separated panels from a T202 are noticeably smaller than the T205 cards.

Similar to the T206 set, one challenge in completing the set is the sheer volume of Hall of Famers on multiple cards. Ty Cobb, for instance, appears on parts of five cards. Mathewson is on eight of them. Despite a manageable 132 cards, the set is not terribly inexpensive because of the high volume of big names appearing more than once.
