1909-1911 T206 Johnny Evers with Bat - Sovereign Back - 1 of 1 - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $6,518

Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Classic card of Johnny Evers (with bat, Cubs on shirt variation) from the T206 White Border series. This card features the desirable Sovereign advertising reverse and is the ONLY example graded at this level (with none higher) featuring this back. As collectors continue to research and understand the nuances of the T206 set (affectionately called "The Monster" and the most classic and popular set of the era), a greater emphasis is being placed on back collecting and the infrequency with which some players and poses appear with certain backs. The offered card is bright and clean, with even wear to the four corners, centering towards the top, and no creases or wrinkles. The important advertising reverse is boldly printed and well centered. There are a few areas of scattered excess print on the back, which do not distract from the visual appeal at all but are mentioned for the sake of extreme accuracy. While population reports are naturally not complete, the data compiled thus far strongly suggest that this particular front-back combination may be an extreme rarity. This fact, in addition to its featuring Hall of Famer Johnny Evers, will very likely make this card of extremely special note to many T206 specialists. Reserve $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $6,518
