1912 S81 Large Silk Premium #110 Walter Johnson
Starting Bid - $800, Sold For - $2,133
Extremely rare 1912 S81 Large Silk of Walter Johnson from this classic issue, which is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful sets ever produced. Johnson, of course, is one of the keys of the set. This is a particularly strong high-grade example for an S81. Flawless image area with extremely bright, bold colors and perfect registration. Some very slight fraying at the top and bottom, including a slightly irregular cut to the top left edge, and some very light soiling along the right and bottom border. Excellent condition. The S81 silks could only be obtained by mail, in exchange for twenty tobacco coupons per silk. This is a stunning and very rarely offered example of Walter Johnson from one of the most highly prized and classic tobacco-premium issues of all time. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500. SOLD FOR $2,133
