1909-1911 T206 Harry Niles and Vive Lindaman - Pair of Missing Red Ink Variations!
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,067
Presented is an extremely rare pair of noteworthy printing variations from the classic T206 set. According to T206Resource.com, T206s were printed in six different color stages, with red as the final color pass. These cards appear to have completely eluded the last stage of printing as not even a trace of red is visible anywhere on the cards. Even at a glance, the difference between these two printing variations and the normal T206 cards is very striking. The two cards, Lindaman and Niles, are missing all the red from their uniforms; the Lindaman is missing the "B" from the center of his cap while the Niles is missing the red trim from the cap and the entire "Boston" team name from across his chest. T206 printing variations of this magnitude are rare. This same printing anomaly is responsible for the more well known T206 Sweeney "No B" printing variation (that in the early days of collecting appeared on all formal T206 checklists). T206Resource.com notes that most of the known examples missing the final red step of the printing process are Boston and Cincinnati subjects. Both of the subjects offered here are Boston players. Each card is graded and encapsulated by PSA as PR 1 due to back damage on the Piedmont reverses. The Lindaman presents as Vg otherwise, while the Niles has extensive surface wrinkling on front. This is an extremely unusual, interesting, rare, and very striking pair of printing errors from the T206 series. Please note: The normal T206 Lindaman and Niles cards with red are pictured here for illustration purposes only and are not included with the lot. Total: 2 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,067
