1913 T200 Fatima Team Washington Americans SGC EX/NM 80 - 1 of 1 - Highest Graded!
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,440
Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher out of 103 cards evaluated by SGC to date! The Washington Americans team is one of the key cards from the popular T200 Fatima set and includes popular Hall of Famers Walter Johnson and Clark Griffith as well as future "Black Sox" star Chick Gandil. Issued one card per pack with Fatima cigarettes, the T200 set is one of the most distinctive of all tobacco-card issues in part because it features real photographs of teams. This Washington Senators card captures the team with Walter Johnson standing dead-center in the back row. This example, as suggested by its impressive grade, is in exceptional condition compared to the average T200. Only five cards (of any team) have ever been graded higher than EX/NM by SGC out of 1,320 cards evaluated to date! This is a remarkably high-grade T200 Fatima team card! The card has a crystal-clear photograph, strong corners showing virtually no touches of wear against the black borders, and a flawless surface, which is exceptional for this issue as T200s are notorious for cracking due to their brittle crease-prone glossy surface. Centered 60/40 left-to-right and 80/20 top-to-bottom. This stunning ultra high-grade example of this key tobacco card would be an ideal sample card, a significant addition to any high-grade Hall of Fame card collection, or an upgrade to virtually any T200 Fatima collection. SOLD FOR $1,440
