Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Crisp and clean example of this classic tobacco card of Hall of Famer Tris Speaker, considered by many to be among the most attractive of all T206 images. This is a particularly important Hall of Fame card in the set, as this is the only T206 pose of Speaker, as well as being his rookie card. This example displays light, even wear to the four corners, a pair of light surface wrinkles, and centering slightly to the top. Flawless registration and bold colors. The Piedmont reverse is centered slightly to the top and displays a few spots of stray blue ink bleed. This is a very attractive example of this classic tobacco card in an extremely desirable grade. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
