1909-1911 T206 White Border Walter Johnson Hands at Chest SGC EX 60 - Sovereign Back!

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,200

Graded EX 60 by SGC. Hands-at-chest pose. Extremely attractive high-grade T206 of Hall of Fame pitcher Walter Johnson featuring a desirable Sovereign advertising reverse. Sovereign is a scarce back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and seen far less often than the standard Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising backs. Johnson, of course, is one of the key Hall of Famers in the T206 White Border set, which is universally recognized as one of the most substantial and beautiful sets ever produced. The offered example is bright and clean, with a deep blue background and perfect registration. The corners show light touches of wear, and the image is centered to the top. The Sovereign advertising on the back is clean and centered to the left. This card would be a significant addition to any high-grade T206, Walter Johnson, or Hall of Fame card collection. This is an exceptional classic vintage card in an extremely desirable grade with a scarce advertising reverse. The equivalent SMR value in the assigned grade is $1,650.  Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,200
