Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. Hands-at-chest pose. Extremely attractive high-grade T206 of Hall of Fame pitcher Walter Johnson. Johnson, of course, is one of the key Hall of Famers in the T206 White Border set, which is universally recognized as one of the most substantial and beautiful sets ever produced. This T206 of Walter Johnson is a gorgeous example. It is bright and clean, with a deep blue background and perfect registration. Well centered, with four strong corners showing only a light touch of wear to the lower left under very close inspection. Boldly printed Sweet Caporal advertising reverse. Possibly undergraded, a subtle paper imperfection on the reverse is our only explanation for the assigned grade. This is an exceptional classic vintage card in a very desirable grade. This card would be a worthy addition to any high-grade T206, Walter Johnson, or Hall of Fame card collection. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
