Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. The only example graded at this level by SGC with none higher! Extremely attractive example of New York Highlanders star Hal Chase (throwing, dark cap) from the T206 White Border series 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. Bright, crisp, and clean, both front and back, with bold colors, four square corners showing hints of wear at the very tips, and near-perfect centering. The boldly printed green text on reverse is centered to the upper left and displays a bit of extra bleed-through ink. An ideal high-grade example of this advertising back worthy of the finest T206 collection. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
