1909-1911 T206 Hal Chase Portrait – Red Hindu Back
Starting Bid - $300.00 , Sold For - $4,112.50
Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Every player has his classic card; for Hal Chase, in the opinion of many, it is his T206 portrait set against a sky blue background. This T206 example is all the more noteworthy, of course, as the reverse features the extremely rare Hindu Cigarettes (red print) advertisement. Red Hindu backs are striking, unusual, and very rare. The card has very strong eye appeal, both front and back. The colors are bright and Chase's image is perfectly focused. The centering is also virtually perfect. The corners have only very light, even wear. The reverse is perfectly clean. The Red Hindu print is flawless and bold. This is an exceptional rare-back example of this classic T206 card. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $4,112.50
