Lot # 227 (of 1389)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1909-1911 T206 White Border Mordecai Brown Cubs - Brown Hindu Back - 1 of 1 - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $9,000

Graded VG 3 by PSA. This is the ONLY example graded at this level by PSA with none higher (it is possible that an equal or higher grade exists among the "Unknown Back" cards listed on the Population Report). Presented is an extremely attractive example of Hall of Famer Mordecai Brown/Cubs shirt 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.This example displays bold colors, a crisp image, even wear to the corners, and outstanding centering. A few spots of surface chipping are visible along the left border along with a tiny wrinkle in the lower left corner. The Hindu advertisement is boldly printed in brown ink. This is a superb card of Hall of Famer Mordecai Brown featuring a scarce T206 advertising back, which is ranked as the fourteenth most difficult (out of thirty-nine) within the set by SOLD FOR $9,000
