1909-1911 T206 White Border Frank Chance Red Portrait SGC NM+ 86 - Sovereign Back!

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,700

Graded NM+ 86 by SGC. Exceptional high-grade example of Chicago Cubs Hall of Famer Frank Chance (portrait, red background) from the legendary T206 White Border series featuring a desirable Sovereign 150 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. This card is stunning in all respects! It displays an extremely bold red background, a flawlessly crisp image, and virtually perfect centering. The four corners are razor-sharp. The Sovereign 150 reverse is clean and well centered. In our opinion, this card would not look out of place in a higher-grade holder! This is a superb ultra high-grade example of Hall of Famer Frank Chance, with an unusual and scarce Sovereign advertising back, worthy of even the most advanced T206 or Hall of Fame collection!  Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,700
