Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Presented is a very attractive example of Hall of Famer Zack Wheat (Brooklyn) featuring a desirable American Beauty 460 advertising reverse. American Beauty 460 is a scarce back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual, and seen far less often than the standard Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising back. The card is bold and crisp, with vibrant colors, strong corners (slightly more wear in the lower left), and centered toward the right. Boldly printed green text on reverse. Only two tiny chips of paper loss on the reverse prevents a higher grade. An ideal Hall of Fame example of this advertising back worthy of the finest T206 collection. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
