1912 T207 Brown Background Louis Lowdermilk

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $3,851

Crisp, clean, high-grade example of T207 Louis Lowdermilk, one of the legendary rarities of tobacco cards. Graded NM 7 (OC) by PSA. One of two examples graded at this qualified level. A single unqualified NM 7 is the only card grading higher. PSA has also graded three EX-MT 6 examples. This card has been assessed with a qualifier by PSA due to centering (approximately 95/5 L/R). Perfect clarity and registration, flawless colors, strong corners (the bottom right exhibits slight wear), and a cleanly printed reverse. Lowdermilk has long been recognized as the key rarity of the T207 brown background tobacco-card series. In the original American Card Catalog by Jefferson Burdick, published in the 1930s, Lowdermilk was the only card in the T207 set singled out as rare and more valuable. (At that time, its value was listed at $1. The T206 Wagner was listed at $50.) Today collectors recognize many cards as being of various degrees of rarity in the T207 set, but Lowdermilk will always be the most famous key rarity of the classic T207 set. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500+. SOLD FOR $3,851
