1909-1911 T206 White Border Heinie Wagner Bat on Right Shoulder - Missing Red Ink Variation!
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,320
Presented is an extremely rare and noteworthy printing variation from the classic T206 set featuring Heinie Wagner (bat on right shoulder) of the Boston Red Sox - missing the red ink printing process! According to T206Resource.com, T206s were printed in six different color stages, with red as the final color pass. This card appears to have completely eluded the last stage of printing as not even a trace of red is visible anywhere. This can clearly be seen by comparing it to a final-process card, which accompanies the missing red ink variation in this lot. Even at a glance, the difference is very striking. Wagner is missing the red trim from the cap along with almost all coloring to the face and hands. T206 printing variations of this magnitude are rare. This same printing anomaly is responsible for the more well known T206 Sweeney "No B" printing variation (that in the early days of collecting appeared on all formal T206 checklists). T206Resource.com notes that most of the known examples missing the final red step of the printing process are Boston and Cincinnati subjects. The missing red ink variation is graded and encapsulated VG-EX 4 by PSA, as is the accompanying final process card. This is an extremely unusual, interesting, rare, and very striking printing error from the T206 series. Total: 2 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,320
