Graded EX 60 by SGC (submitted by REA). Extremely attractive high-grade example of one of the hobby's most classic cards. T206 Walter Johnson portrait is one of the most famous of all vintage baseball cards. This card is widely recognized to be among Walter Johnson's most striking cards. In fact, the majestic portrait of Johnson on this card is considered by many advanced collectors to be the single best image of Walter Johnson to appear on any baseball card. This is a beautiful example. It is crisp and clean, with bold colors, and a bright yellow background. The corners are square with light wear (more so on the upper left). Centered slightly to the bottom left. The Piedmont 350 advertising on the back is boldly printed. This is an exceptional card in an extremely desirable grade, and would be a worthy addition to any T206, Walter Johnson, or classic Hall of Fame card collection. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+.
