Extremely rare 1912 S81 Large Silk of Johnny Evers from this classic issue, which is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful sets ever produced. Evers is one of the keys to the set, of special significance both as a Hall of Famer, as well as being one of only two distinctive horizontal designs in the set. The image area is flawless with extremely bright, bold colors. Some very slight fraying at the left and right, which is typical for large silks, and four very light hints of glue marks in the corners of the reverse (which are of no consequence but strictly mentioned for the sake of accuracy), otherwise in Near Mint condition. S81s rarely survive in this high grade, let alone examples of the key stars of the set such as Johnny Evers. This is an extremely attractive and very rarely offered example of Johnny Evers from one of the most classic tobacco-premium issues of all time. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500.
