Graded FR 1.5 by PSA (submitted by REA). Presented is an example of Billy Maloney (Rochester) with a desirable Broad Leaf 350 advertising reverse. This is the ONLY example of Maloney featuring a Broad Leaf 350 reverse ever graded (at any level) by PSA and SGC! (PSA only started designating advertising backs within the past few years, so it is theoretically possible that another example with a Broad Leaf back shows as unclassified in its Population Report, but we would have no way of knowing.) Broad Leaf 350 series backs are unusual and very rare, though not quite as rare as the rarest T206 advertising backs (such as Broad Leaf 460 series, Drum, or Uzit). According to T206Resource.com, the Broad Leaf 350 series back ranks as the ninth scarcest on its list of thirty-nine different T206 advertising backs. Bold colors and outstanding centering. The card displays advanced rounding of the corners and creasing in the top left and across the center. The important Broad Leaf advertisement is well centered and boldly printed in brown ink. A modestly graded example of one of the premier T206 rare backs, and an exceedingly rare front-back combination. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
