Extremely rare 1912 S81 Large Silk of John McGraw from this classic issue, which is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful sets ever produced. McGraw 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, a light stain in the top right, and a few light creases, otherwise in Near Mint condition. S81s rarely survive in this high grade, let alone examples of the key stars of the set such as John McGraw. This is a very striking example of John McGraw from one of the rarest and most classic of all 1910-era tobacco-premium issues. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+.
