Graded EX+ 70 by SGC. Washington team variation. The only example graded at this level by SGC with none higher!. Since the days of Jefferson Burdick, this team-designation variation has always been recognized as one of the rarer cards of the T206 set. This is a very highly graded SGC example. Most T206s, of course, have survived in far lesser condition, so when dealing with any of the few cards in the set with a notable degree of extra rarity, high-grade examples naturally have a special premium value to collectors. Featuring the desirable Sovereign 350 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. The offered card is extremely bright and crisp, and presents a strong and impressive image of Brown. This card exhibits flawless colors, perfect registration, light wear to the corners, and is centered slightly toward the bottom right. Boldly printed and well-centered green text on reverse. This is an extremely attractive card and one that, due to its low population in high SGC grades, is of special value to most SGC Registry sets. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
