Graded NM 7 by PSA. Only two examples have ever been graded higher by PSA. Extraordinary high-grade example of Boston Red Sox pitcher Smoky Joe Wood from the very popular M116 Sporting Life series. The card is perfectly clean, both front and back, with four sharp corners, outstanding registration and with particularly large snow-white borders. The centering on front is slightly toward the top. The back of the card (which is of the rarer "Over 300 Subjects" variety) is also centered just slightly toward the top, with a bit of toning visible along the right edge. This card is a conservatively-graded gem and would be a significant addition to any world-class vintage-card collection, and a highlight in any high-grade M116 Sporting Life or Smoky Joe Wood collection. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+.
