Graded GOOD 2 by PSA. Presented is an extremely attractive example of Hall of Famer Mordecai Brown/Cubs shirt featuring a desirable Brown Hindu advertising reverse. This card is especially noteworthy as one of the eleven subjects only found with 150 series backs, the toughest of which is Brown Hindu. The eleven 150 subjects are the toughest of the Brown Hindus to collect (136 subjects have been confirmed to date). This is only the second Brown Hindu of Mordecai Brown/Cubs shirt that we have ever handled (the first appeared as lot #227 in our Fall 2014 auction and realized $9,000). This example displays bold colors, a crisp image, even wear to the corners, and centering to the top left. It is modestly graded due to light creasing on the front and a surface chip along the right border. The Hindu advertisement is boldly printed in brown ink. This is a superb card of Hall of Famer Mordecai Brown featuring a scarce T206 advertising back, which is ranked as the fourteenth most difficult (out of thirty-nine) within the set by T206Resource.com. Reserve $400. Estimate (open).
