1912 T207 Brown Background Louis Lowdermilk - Broadleaf Back - Lionel Carter Collection

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $960

Graded FAIR 20 by SGC. Pedigreed from the Lionel Carter Collection. Modestly graded example of Louis Lowdermilk from the T207 Brown Background set. Lowdermilk has long been recognized as a key rarity of the T207 Brown Background tobacco card series. In the 1930s, in the original American Card Catalog by Jefferson Burdick, Lowdermilk was listed as rarer and more valuable than any other card in the T207 set. (At that time, its value was listed at $1. The T206 Wagner was listed at $50.) Today collectors recognize many cards as being of various degrees of rarity in the T207 set, but Lowdermilk will always be the most famous key rarity of the classic T207 set. The offered example features a clean, crisp portrait, with even rounding to the corners, centering to the left, and light surface wear on the reverse, which features a Broadleaf Cigarettes advertisement. This is a relatively affordable, and still presentable, example of one of the rarest cards in the T207 set and in all of tobacco-card collecting.  Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $960
