1909-1911 T206 Wild Bill Donovan Throwing - Blank Back

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,304

Offered is an unusual blank-backed example of Wild Bill Donovan (throwing) from the legendary T206 series. Discovered by a collector in a small group lot of commons many years ago, this card was just recently encapsulated as "Authentic" by SGC. Blank backs are very scarce and according to, currently rank as the tenth most difficult back variety (out of thirty-nine). This is the first example of Donovan/throwing to be confirmed with a blank back. In addition to the desirable reverse, this card exhibits characteristics consistent with hand-cutting, measuring slightly smaller than a normal T206. Bold colors, with scattered wrinkling visible on the front, and a slightly off-register image. Clean reverse with an area of paper loss near the top border. This is a unique oddity that is likely to be of great interest to collectors of printing anomalies and of the various nuances of the legendary T206 set. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,304
