Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. One of only three examples graded at this level by PSA, with none graded higher. Extraordinary high-grade example from the classic T202 Hassan Triple Folders set: #60 "Evers Makes A Safe Slide," featuring Hall of Famer Johnny Evers and James Archer on the end panels, and Hall of Famer Johnny Evers featured in an action scene sliding safely into third on the center panel. As indicated by the PSA population report, T202 Triple Folders are virtually nonexistent in Near Mint to Mint or better condition. Of the 7,152 T202s graded by PSA to date, only 286 examples have been graded NM-MT 8 or better (278 NM-MT 8s, four NM-MT 8+, and four MINT 9s). The offered example is bright and crisp, with four sharp corners, flawless registration, and vibrant colors. The slightly irregular natural cut along the top is common with T202s due to their method of production. This is an exceptional high-grade example, from arguably the most interesting and beautiful baseball tobacco issue ever produced. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open).
