Graded EX 60 by SGC. The only example graded at this level by SGC with none higher! Crisp, 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 and centering slightly toward the left border. Near-flawless registration, bold colors, and no creases or wrinkles. Boldly printed and well-centered Polar Bear advertisement on the reverse. Light tobacco staining (a natural occurrence with Polar Bear backs) is visible mainly on the front. This is a very attractive example of this classic tobacco card in an extremely desirable grade. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
