Graded NM 84 by SGC. Extremely attractive high-grade 1910 S74 "Colored" Tobacco Silk of Hall of Famer Walter Johnson. S74 silks are related to the T205 Gold Border series, and share the same basic player designs. There are two very similar S74 sets, one ever so slightly larger than the other. Walter Johnson is only found in the colored series. The offered example features a crisp image of Johnson in brown print set against the yellow-colored silk, with no creases and near-perfect centering. The factory designation is printed at the top, with advertising for Old Mill Cigarettes at the bottom. There is slight fraying to the edges (which is standard for this series). S74s represent one of the very best values of all 1910-era baseball tobacco issues. This Walter Johnson silk is a key to the S74 "Colored" Silks set and would be a worthy addition to any S74, Walter Johnson, or 1910-era card collection. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
