Graded EX 5 by PSA. Extremely attractive and rare high-grade example of John Kling (Chicago Cubs) from the T205 Gold Border set featuring a Hindu advertising reverse. Only Drum can compete with Hindu in terms of rarity among T205 backs. This is only the second T205 Hindu back we have offered since 2010 when a remarkable group of six, including Walter Johnson, realized $8,225 as lot #325. The offered card is bright and crisp, both front and back, with no creases, bold color, and light, even wear to the corners. The reverse is perfectly clean, which is ideal for a rare T205 advertising-back example. This is a very attractive example with an extremely rare back from one of the premier tobacco-card sets of the era. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
