1912 T207 Brown Background Hank Butcher SGC EX/NM 80 - Cycle Back - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $540

Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! Exceptional example of Hank Butcher (Cleveland Naps) from the T207 Brown Background set featuring the rare Cycle Cigarettes advertising reverse. T207s are found with a number of different advertising backs (similar to T205 and T206), and Cycle backs have always been considered to be among the rarest (and most aesthetically pleasing). The offered card is entirely crisp and clean, with bold colors, a flawless surface, strong corners, and near-perfect centering. The reverse is clean, with a crisp, bold advertisement, ideal for a sample card. The rare backs (Cycle, Broadleaf, and no advertising) are usually associated with the rarer cards in the T207 set, which make the assembly of a complete set so difficult. This is a superb example featuring the rare Cycle advertising reverse.  Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $540
