1912 T202 Triple Folder "Birmingham Gets to Third" Johnson/Street SGC NM+ 86

Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $2,900.00

Graded NM+ 86 by SGC. Exceptionally high-grade example of one of the key cards from the classic T202 Hassan Triple Folders set: #9 "Birmingham Gets to Third" featuring Hall of Fame pitcher Walter Johnson and Charles Street on the end panels. T202 Triple Folders are one of the most condition-sensitive prewar issues. Due to their unusual design and method of issue, they are virtually nonexistent in Near Mint or better condition. The offered example is a rare exception. Perfectly clean, both front and back, with snow-white borders, bright and crisp colors, virtually flawless registration, and four sharp corners. The approximately 30/70 left to right centering is most likely responsible for this card not receiving a Nr/Mt-Mt grade by SGC. This is an extraordinary high-grade example which would be at home in the highest grade T202 collection, or would be a highlight for any serious Walter Johnson or prewar Hall of Fame card collection. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $2,900.00
