Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. This is the ONLY example graded at this level by PSA with none higher. Outstanding ultra high-grade example of Hall of Famer Addie Joss (portrait) from the T206 series featuring the scarce and desirable Sovereign 350 advertising reverse. Sovereign is a scarce back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and seen far less often than the standard Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising backs. PSA only began distinguishing backs several years ago, so while it is possible that another Sovereign may exist in this incredible high grade, it should be noted that only twenty examples of this card (in total, with all backs) have ever been graded NM-MT 8 with only three higher out of 608 cards evaluated to date. The offered card displays a striking portrait image set against a bright yellow background, four sharp corners, and virtually perfect centering (just a hint to the right). Entirely clean, well centered, and boldly printed Sovereign advertisement. This is a stunning example of this popular Hall of Famer from the classic T206 set with a particularly desirable advertising reverse. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500++.
