1909-1911 T206 Walter Johnson - "Hindu" Back

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $4,113

Graded GOOD 2 by PSA. Classic T206 portrait pose of Hall of Fame pitcher Walter Johnson with the very scarce Hindu (brown) advertising reverse. This is a particularly rare and noteworthy combination! Rare-back T206s are always popular but are naturally all the more special when the card happens to feature one of the keys in the set. That is certainly the case with this gem, as Walter Johnson's portrait card is one of the most desirable of all vintage Hall of Famer cards, one of the most popular of all T206 designs, and one of the most highly regarded of all Walter Johnson cards. This also happens to be a beautiful and very conservatively graded T206 Johnson. This card is graded GOOD 2 by PSA, but has a Vg-Ex appearance. The extremely harsh PSA grade is due to a light stain on the reverse. This card is otherwise in Vg-Ex condition. All cards graded Good should look so great! It is beautifully centered, with light, even wear to the corners, a striking yellow background, and a couple light wrinkles visible on the reverse in the lower right. A T206 Walter Johnson portrait with a Hindu advertising back is a rare combination. For all the thousands of T206s sold at REA, we can only recall ever offering one other example. This is an extremely attractive, conservatively graded, rare-back example of the most popular cards in the entire T206 set. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
