1909-1911 T206 Frank Baker - American Beauty 350 (No Frame) Back

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,058

Graded EX 60 by SGC. Exceptionally attractive example of Hall of Famer Frank Baker from the T206 White Border series with an American Beauty 350 (no frame) advertising reverse. This card jumps out as a particularly high quality example of an unusual T206 HOF front-back combination. American Beauty 350 (no frame) is a very scarce back, not quite in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and extremely rare compared to most other T206 advertising backs. This is a simply tremendous example of Frank Baker, with a considerably stronger eye-appeal than suggested by its very respectable and technically accurate SGC grade. The card is bright and crisp, both front and back, with very bold colors, perfect registration, just a hint of wear on the square corners, and perfectly centered. The reverse is perfectly clean with bold green print against the off-white background. The card has been downgraded by SGC due to the tiniest bend at the extreme upper right corner. It is otherwise in Ex-Mt condition. This is a gorgeous card! Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $1,058
