Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. Exceptionally strong high-grade example of Bill Dahlen (Brooklyn variation) from the classic T206 White Border set. Only ten examples grade higher out of 243 cards evaluated to date. Dahlen was a significant star for twenty-one Major League seasons, and is one of the few players in the T206 set not in the Hall of Fame who has always widely been considered worthy of that honor. In addition, since the days of Jefferson Burdick and before, the Dahlen, Brooklyn team-designation variation, has always been recognized as one of the important rarities of the T206 set. The offered example is bright and crisp, with flawless registration, bold colors, and four strong corners showing light wear. Centered just a hint to the bottom right. The back is also bright and clean, with bold blue advertising print for Piedmont Cigarettes. In addition to being an important card in the T206 set, this card is also especially appreciated for its strong visual appeal. This is an outstanding example of this T206 rarity, worthy of any extremely high quality complete set or prewar-card collection. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
