1909-1911 T206 White Border Donie Bush - Interesting Pair of Printing Anomalies!

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $360

Presented is a fascinating pair of printing anomalies featuring Detroit Tigers infielder Donie Bush from the classic T206 White Border series. The first card, graded FAIR 20 by SGC, is missing the final color pass, creating a much different appearance than expected for this card, which is normally found with a deep red background and is instead a consistent orange on the offered card. The second card, graded VG-EX 4 by PSA, presents with the nameplate (Bush, Detroit) almost entirely in the image area instead of the bottom border as expected. A very slight ghost image is also apparent in the area of Bush's head and neck. Almost certainly the result of a sheet shifting during the printing process, this creates an interesting effect on what is otherwise a normal final-production card. When it comes to the T206 set, which is the most highly collected of all vintage-card sets, anything unusual (especially if it might in any way shed light on the mysteries of how the T206 set was printed) is of great note. This is a very unusual and undoubtedly unique pair of T206 printing errors that we believe will be of great interest to T206 scholars and collectors. The T206 set, affectionately known as "The Monster," is the most popular of all 1910-era sets and is still yielding new and exciting discoveries more than a century after its production. As collectors have become more sophisticated, there has been a growing appreciation for all great rarities and unusual cards associated with this landmark set. This is a very intriguing pair of cards that is sure to be of special note to collectors of the various nuances of the T206 set. Total: 2 cards. SOLD FOR $360
