1912 T207 Brown Background Louis Lowdermilk - PSA NM 7 - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $11,163

Graded NM 7 by PSA. Highest-graded example ever by PSA or SGC! (The highest grade listed on the SGC population report is EX/NM 80.) One of the legendary rarities of tobacco cards, from the T207 Brown Background series, Louis Lowdermilk has long been recognized as the key rarity of the set. In the original American Card Catalog by Jefferson Burdick, Lowdermilk was the only card listed as rarer and more valuable than others in the T207 set. (At that time, its value was listed at $1. The T206 Wagner was listed at $50.) Crisp and clean, with an essentially flawless bold brown background, no creases, and four sharp corners with just a hint of wear visible under magnification (a little more wear on the upper left). Centered to the right approximately 75/25. The reverse (centered approximately 30/70 left to right) has a small stain on the lower left portion of the card, but otherwise is perfectly clean and features a boldly printed advertisement for Cycle Cigarettes. This is an impressive example of T207 Louis Lowdermilk; the highest-graded example of one of tobacco-card collecting's most legendary rarities. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000/$10,000. SOLD FOR $11,163
