1909-1911 T206 White Border Walter Johnson Hands at Chest - Tolstoi Back!

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,440

Graded VG-EX+ 4.5 by PSA. Hands-at-chest pose. Extremely attractive T206 of Hall of Fame pitcher Walter Johnson featuring a desirable Tolstoi advertising reverse. Tolstoi 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 near-perfect registration. The corners show light touches of wear, and the image is centered to the top. The Tolstoi advertising on the back is clean and well centered, with a few light age spots visible (mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy). This card would be a worthy addition to any 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.  Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,440
