Lot # 218 (of 1336)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1909-1911 T206 White Border Woodie Thornton Southern Leaguer - Brown Hindu Back

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $300

Graded GOOD+ 35 by SGC. Attractive example of Southern Leaguer Woodie Thornton, Mobile, from the T206 White Border set with the very scarce Brown Hindu advertising reverse. Brown Hindu is a very scarce back, not as rare as Red Hindu, but very unusual and extremely rare compared to most other T206 advertising backs. Thirty-four of the forty-eight Southern Leaguers can be found with a Brown Hindu reverse. All thirty-four are presented in this auction in a series of different lots. This example presents with a crisp image, even rounding to the corners, and centering to the top. Downgraded due to a faint crease in the upper right and a two-inch diagonal crease in the lower right. The reverse features an almost entirely clean Hindu advertisement centered to the right. This is a very desirable Southern Leaguer from the legendary T206 set with the scarce Brown Hindu tobacco advertisement on the reverse.  Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $300
