1909-1911 T206 Al Burch Fielding PSA VG-EX 4 - Extremely Rare Brown Lenox Back!

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $7,703

Offered is one of the "holy grails" of T206 advertising-back collecting - an extremely rare Brown Lenox reverse. Ranked by as the third most difficult back (out of thirty-nine different advertising backs), the Brown Lenox ranks behind only the Brown Old Mill (available only on Southern Leaguers and only a handful of which have been confirmed) and the Ty Cobb Tobacco (available only on Cobb/red portrait and approximately thirteen of which are known to exist). The offered example of Al Burch (fielding) grades VG-EX 4 by PSA. Bright and crisp with bold colors, perfect centering, light, even wear to the four corners, and an upper right corner crease. Clean, boldly printed reverse with an unquestionably brown color. A total of nine Brown Lenox examples have been graded by SGC and PSA combined, with an unknown number of examples (such as this card) not distinguished as brown in their population reports. Regardless of what the population reports say, the Brown Lenox cards are supreme rarities. This is a magnificent example of this tremendous advertising-back rarity and one that would make an outstanding addition to any T206 back collection. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $7,703
