Graded NM 84 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! Extraordinary ultra high-grade example of Hall of Famer Joe Tinker (bat off shoulder pose) with the extremely rare Uzit advertising back. This is one of only three T206 Tinker examples with this rare advertising reverse on record at SGC (in any grade) and is the highest graded by a decent margin (the other is EX 60). In addition, this card is one of only six T206 Uzit examples (of any subject) to ever grade NM or higher out of 226 examples evaluated between PSA and SGC to date. This is an extremely high grade T206 that would be noteworthy for even a Piedmont or Sweet Caporal common, but is extraordinary given that this is a Hall of Famer with a Uzit reverse. According to T206Resource.com, out of thirty-nine possible advertising backs, Uzit ranks as the sixth most difficult to find. This is a remarkable card! Crisp and clean, both front and back, with brilliant colors, perfect registration, and four sharp corners. Centered slightly to the left. The important Uzit advertising back is boldly printed and well centered. A tremendous example in unparalleled high grade of this T206 Hall of Famer with the desirable Uzit advertising reverse. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open).
