1909 T204 Ramly Tobacco Clark Griffith SGC NM 84 - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $2,000, Sold For - $4,148

Graded NM 84 by SGC (submitted by REA). One of only three examples graded at this level with none higher. Presented is Hall of Famer Clark Griffith (Cincinnati Redlegs) from the prized T204 Ramly series, one of the premier tobacco-card issues of the era. The Ramly series is universally recognized as one of the most desirable of all the tobacco-card issues, appreciated by collectors both for its rarity and distinctive style. Griffith is one of only fifteen Hall of Famers in the Ramly Tobacco set. The card is perfectly centered, with flawless borders and only tiny touches of wear visible under close inspection at the extreme tips of the corners. The portrait is flawless and particularly crisp. Perfectly clean both front and back with a boldly printed reverse. This is an extremely attractive and simply outstanding high-grade example of one of the key Hall of Famers from this beautiful and extremely condition-sensitive set. The equivalent SMR value for the assigned grade is $7,750. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000+. SOLD FOR $4,148
