1909-11 T206 Willie Keeler (Bat) SGC MINT 96
Starting Bid - $2,500.00, Sold For - $6,325.00
Graded MINT 96 by SGC. Absolutely astonishing, stunning ultra high-grade example of key Hall of Famer Willie Keeler (batting pose) from the T206 White Borders series, the most popular set of the era. Graded MINT 96 by SGC, the offered card, not surprisingly, displays perfect centering, with four razor-sharp corners, snow-white borders, flawless colors, perfect clarity and registration, and is flawlessly crisp and clean, front and back. "Wee Willie" Keeler's motto of "Hit 'em where they ain't" won him two batting titles, eight straight years of 200 or more hits, and a 44-game hitting streak in 1897. Gifted with a keen eye and exceptional speed, Keeler's place-hitting prowess resulted in 13 straight seasons batting over .300, and a career mark of .345. This is the only MINT 96 T206 Keeler that SGC has graded, and one of only a few MINT 96 T206's of any player that SGC has ever graded. A simply astounding Mint card of a significant Hall of Famer, that would enhance or upgrade any high-grade set or collection. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000/$8,000. SOLD FOR $6,325.00
