Graded NM/MT 88 by SGC. Extraordinary ultra high-grade E254 Colgan’s Chips card of Hall of Famer Frank Chance. This is an extreme rarity in such high grade. SGC has only graded two examples at this level (with none higher). This is one of Frank Chance's most unusual and striking cards. This card is also noteworthy as it features the very same Carl Horner portrait as appears on Chance's T206 card. Perfectly clean both front and back, and with a crisp, flawless image. The boldly printed advertisement on the reverse is perfectly centered. Colgan's obviously don't have corner wear, but it is a miracle there is only the faintest hint of edge wear from normal handling. This is a stunning high-grade example of one of Frank Chance’s most classic and unusual cards, from one of vintage-card collecting's most distinctive sets. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
