Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Very attractive example of the rare Demmitt, St. Louis Americans T206 variation, in medium-grade for a normal T206, but in far better condition than normally seen for this rare card. Only seven T206 examples of Demmitt, St. Louis Americans have ever been graded higher by PSA (two EX 5, two EX-MT 6, two NM 7, and one NM-MT 8). Polar Bear was the only company to issue this T206 variation and this fact is directly related to why Demmitt is so difficult to find in high grade. The packaged cards issued with Polar Bear tobacco were not well protected from the accompanying product; thus, almost all Demmitt cards have at least some tobacco staining. This example has very little staining (mostly on the back), and a diagonal crease in the upper right portion of the card (touching the brim of Demmitt’s cap). Bright and crisp, with extremely fresh colors, and perfect centering. This is a very attractive medium-grade example of one of the rarest cards in the classic T206 White Border set. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $5,581
