Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Hands-at-chest pose. Very attractive mid-grade T206 of Hall of Fame pitcher Walter Johnson featuring a desirable Polar Bear advertising reverse. Polar Bears are an especially popular advertising back with collectors because of the distinct blue background and crisp white printing. 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. The offered example is bright and clean, with a deep blue background, light wear at the corners (a bit more at the lower left), and centering toward the upper right. A natural diamond cut and a very small chip of paper loss on the right edge account for the assigned grade. The Polar Bear advertising on the back is clean and centered toward the upper right. This card would be a significant addition to any T206, Walter Johnson, or Hall of Fame card collection. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
