1909-1911 T206 Jesse Tannehill - Broad Leaf 350 Back - Highest Graded!
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,067
Graded FAIR 20 by SGC. Extremely attractive example of Jesse Tannehill (Washington Senators) with a desirable Broad Leaf 350 advertising reverse. Broad Leaf 350 series backs are unusual and very rare, though not quite as rare as the rarest T206 advertising backs (such as Broad Leaf 460 series, Drum, or Uzit). According to T206Resource.com, the Broad Leaf 350 series back ranks as the ninth scarcest on its list of thirty-nine different T206 advertising backs. This card, which was discovered by REA in an old-time collection of T206s consigned to this auction (another Broad Leaf as well as two Drums were also found and are offered separately), is only the second example of Tannehill with a Broad Leaf 350 reverse to ever be graded by SGC and PSA combined (the other is graded SGC POOR 10). Clean and crisp with excellent centering, bold colors, and light, even wear to the four corners. Two light creases are visible on front under close inspection and are slightly more pronounced on the reverse. The important Broad Leaf advertisement is boldly printed in brown ink and centered very slightly to the left. A purple-ink stamp reading "Gabriels, N.Y." sits in the center of the back near the word "Cigarettes." This is an outstanding opportunity to acquire a modestly graded (and therefore presumably relatively affordable) yet still very attractive example of one of the premier T206 rare backs. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,067
