Graded EX 60 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! Extremely scarce T206 example of "Happy" Smith (Brooklyn Superbas) featuring the desirable American Beauty 460 advertising reverse. American Beauty 460 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 back. The offered example displays a crisp image and bold colors, with light wear to the corners, centering slightly to the right, and thin borders characteristic of American Beauty cards. The reverse is boldly printed and well centered. This is a particularly difficult card to locate with an American Beauty 460 reverse and will likely be highly prized by advanced T206 set collectors. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
