Graded FAIR 20 by SGC. Rare Drum back T205 Hall of Famer example. Extremely attractive T205 Gold Border with Drum advertising reverse featuring Hall of Famer Mordecai Brown. Only Hindu can compete with Drum in terms of rarity among T205 backs. Even a common player T205 Drum back is noteworthy. This is a tremendous Hall of Famer example, and one with an appearance much stronger than its technically accurate SGC grade. The card has been downgraded from a much higher grade due to a tiny pinhole on the top border. The card is bright and crisp, both front and back, with no creases, bold color, very little chipping to the borders, and even wear to the corners. The reverse is perfectly clean with extremely crisp bold blue print against the off-white background, which is ideal for a rare T205 advertising back example. This is a very attractive rare-back variety of this classic Mordecai Brown card from one of the premier tobacco-card sets of the era. Reserve $200. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,998
