Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. This is a bright, clean, and high-grade example of this classic tobacco card of Hall of Famer Sam Crawford in the throwing pose. In addition to its impressive grade, the card is notable for its 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. The card displays perfect registration, flawless colors, four strong corners, and centering inclined slightly to the bottom. Entirely clean, well-centered Sovereign advertisement. This is a very attractive Hall of Fame example, with the scarce Sovereign tobacco advertisement on the reverse, that would be a very welcome addition to any high-quality T206, Hall of Fame, or prewar-card collection. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
