Graded GEM MINT 98 by SGC. Highest-graded example by SGC! This card, which is an early SGC-graded example, is the ONLY T202 Triple Folder (of any card in the set) EVER graded GEM MINT 98. While collectors understand that SGC is particularly hard on Triple Folders, exactly how hard can only be fully appreciated by consulting SGC's population report. As of this writing, a total of 5,710 T202 Triple Folders have been graded by SGC, of which only two have ever been graded MINT 96, and ONLY one (the offered example) has been graded GEM MINT 98. This T202 is practically a miracle to be offered in this condition! The offered example of "The Athletic Infield" featuring Hall of Famer Mordecai Brown and George Graham on the end-panels is, as expected, an incredible gem, essentially flawless in all respects, with snow-white borders, four razor-sharp corners, and outstanding centering. The finest example in the universe! Reserve $2,500. Estimate (open).
