Lot # 224 (of 1389)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1909-1911 T206 White Border Harry Pattee - Brown Hindu Back - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $840

Presented is a very attractive example of Harry Pattee (Brooklyn Superbas) featuring a desirable Brown Hindu advertising reverse. This card is especially noteworthy as one of the eleven subjects only found with 150 series backs, the toughest of which is Brown Hindu. Each of these eleven subjects featuring a Brown Hindu reverse is presented individually in this auction for what may be the first time in hobby history. The eleven 150 subjects are the toughest of the Brown Hindus to collect (136 subjects have been confirmed to date). This represents a tremendous accomplishment and a unique opportunity for REA to present these eleven Brown Hindus at one time. Graded VG 40 by SGC, this example is one of only two examples graded at this level with none higher by SGC. Bright and crisp with four strong corners displaying light even wear, bold colors, and perfect centering. There is a very small chip out of the top border which accounts for the modest assigned grade despite an otherwise Excellent appearance. The Hindu advertisement is boldly printed in brown ink. This is a superb card featuring a scarce T206 advertising back, which is ranked as the fourteenth most difficult (out of thirty-nine) within the set by SOLD FOR $840
