Presented is a very rare example of New York Highlanders star Hal Chase (holding trophy variation) from the classic T206 set with an extremely desirable Uzit advertising reverse. This is the ONLY example featuring a Uzit reverse ever graded (at any level) by SGC! According to T206Resource.com, Uzit ranks as the sixth most difficult (out of thirty-nine) advertising back to find. This card was part of a totally untouched collection of 1910-era tobacco cards consigned to this auction (all cards from this collection appear in several lots of the auction) that was saved for decades by the family of the original owner. Graded POOR 10 by SGC (submitted by REA), the offered example displays a number of condition issues, including multiple creases, even rounding to the corners, and a few stains. The important Uzit advertising reverse, however, is boldly printed, making this an ideal example for back collectors. A worthy addition to any T206 set or rare-back collection. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
