Fred Merkle/throwing (New York Giants) from the T206 White Border set featuring a rare black Lenox advertising reverse. According to T206Resource.com, the Lenox back is the eighth most difficult advertising reverse (out of thirty-nine) within the set. Encapsulated Authentic by SGC, the card displays obvious flaws, including two upper corners missing, heavy creasing, and ink marks on his neck, which all contribute to the card not being assigned a numerical grade. The important reverse features a crisply printed and bold black advertisement. This is a presentable low-grade example that would make a solid addition to any T206 rare-back collection. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
