1912 T207 Brown Background Nelson - Rare "Red Cross" Back

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,113

Graded GOOD 30 by SGC. T207 "Red Cross" tobacco card of Red Nelson from the St. Louis Americans. This is one of eight T207 cards with "Red Cross" backs from one of vintage-card collecting's most exciting recent discoveries: the Louisiana Find of 2010. Nelson has always been recognized as one of the rare cards in the T207 set (with any back), but until now has been unknown with a Red Cross advertising back. The card has a flawless image, even wear on the corners, a few creases on the right portion of the card, and is centered to the left (approximately 25/75 L/R). The reverse has scattered hints of light toning and is very bright with strong red print. Magnificent T207 example with the extremely rare Red Cross advertising reverse. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $4,113
