1909-1911 T206 White Border Admiral Schlei Portrait - Cycle 460 Back - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,560

Graded EX 60 by SGC. Extremely attractive T206 example of Admiral Schlei/portrait (New York Giants) with the very desirable Cycle 460 advertising reverse, ranked by as the seventeenth toughest back (with some almost impossible backs like Ty Cobb, Brown Old Mill, and Brown Lenox ahead of it). The offered example is bright crisp, and clean, with even wear to the corners (slightly more in the lower right), and outstanding centering. A faint wet-sheet transfer of the Cycle advertisement is visible to the right of Schlei's head. The important Cycle 460 advertising reverse is boldly printed and centered to the right. This is the ONLY example graded at this level by SGC with none higher (one card, graded EX/NM 80, does not have the variation specified and could also be a portrait). This is a superb card featuring a scarce T206 advertising back. SOLD FOR $1,560
