1909-1911 T206 John McGraw - Rare "Red Hindu" Back

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,938

Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Glove-at-hip pose of Hall of Famer John McGraw with the extremely rare Hindu Cigarettes (red print) advertisement on the back. Red Hindu backs are striking, unusual, and extremely rare. Even a sample of a common player is one of the most difficult to find of all T206 advertising backs. Examples featuring Hall of Famers are naturally rarer still, especially considering that the total checklist of confirmed T206 Red Hindu back examples to date is just forty-six different subjects. The card is well centered, with no creases, and evenly rounded corners. The Red Hindu print is flawless and bold. This is a sharp looking rare-back variety of this classic John McGraw card from the premier tobacco-card set of the era. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $2,938
