1909-1911 T206 Joe Tinker Portrait – Hindu Back

Starting Bid - $200.00 , Sold For - $940.00

Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Brown Hindu back T206 Hall of Famer example. Exceptionally attractive portrait pose of Hall of Famer Joe Tinker from the T206 White Borders series, with a brown Hindu advertising reverse. Hindu (brown) is a very scarce back, not quite in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and extremely rare compared to most other T206 advertising backs. This is a tremendous example of Joe Tinker, with an even stronger eye appeal than suggested by its very respectable and technically accurate PSA grade. The card is bright and crisp, both front and back, with no creases, bold color, and even wear to the corners. Centered 40/60 left to right. The reverse is perfectly clean with bold brown print against an off-white background. It is also interesting to note that on occasion there surfaces an example from the T206 series which projects a marked departure from the color norm. The Joe Tinker offered here presents such a case. The card features a distinctly orange background, as opposed to the familiar deep red background that is normally seen with this T206 portrait card of Tinker. This is a very interesting rare-back variety of this classic Joe Tinker card from the premier tobacco-card set of the era. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $940.00
