1909-1911 T206 White Border Danny Murphy Batting SGC NM 84 - American Beauty 350 Back - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $960

Graded NM 84 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher by PSA and SGC combined. Exceptional ultra high-grade example of Danny Murphy/batting (Philadelphia Athletics) from the classic T206 White Border series featuring a desirable American Beauty advertising reverse. American Beauty 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 back. The offered example presents with brilliant colors, a crisp, flawless image, four strong corners, and centering to the left, with narrow side borders, a characteristic common to all American Beauty cards, which are noticeable thinner than cards featuring other advertising brands. The important advertising reverse is entirely clean and boldly printed. A superb high-grade example of this very desirable advertising back worthy of even the most advanced T206 collection.  Reserve $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $960
