Graded EX 60 by SGC. The only example graded at this level by SGC with none graded higher! Extremely attractive example of Chicago Cubs Hall of Famer Joe Tinker (portrait) from the T206 White Border series featuring the desirable Sovereign 150 advertising reverse. Sovereign 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 backs. Bright, crisp, and clean, both front and back, with bold colors, light wear to the corners (a bit more to the upper left), and centering slightly toward the left. Boldly printed green text on reverse. An ideal Hall of Fame example of this advertising back worthy of the finest T206 collection. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
