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

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,994

Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. T207 "Red Cross" tobacco card of John Adams from the Cleveland 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. Adams has always been recognized as a rare card in the T207 set (with any back) but until now has been unknown with a Red Cross advertising back. Bright and crisp, with even wear on the corners, no creases, and centered to the bottom left. The reverse has a hint of light soiling. This is a very attractive and unique T207 example with the extremely rare Red Cross advertising reverse. Also of special note is the fact that this card is the highest graded of the eight T207 Red Cross cards from the Louisiana Find. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $4,994
