Graded EX 5 by PSA. Extremely desirable sample card of Beals Becker (New York Giants) featuring the scarce Broad Leaf Cigarettes advertising reverse. Broad Leaf backs are encountered with much less frequency than the standard advertising backs found within the T205 set (Piedmont, Sweet Caporal, and Hassan). In fact, we have offered only a handful of Broad Leaf backs from these two sets combined in the last twenty years (far fewer than the number of rare Broad Leaf backs from the T206 set). The offered card is stunning, with brilliant colors, a crisp image, virtually flawless gold borders, and light touches of wear on the corners (slightly more in the lower right). A very faint surface wrinkle is visible near the upper right corner on the reverse. The important advertising reverse is boldly printed and clean. A superb example featuring this rare advertising back from the classic T205 set. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
