1912 T207 Brown Background "Smokey" Joe Wood SGC EX 60

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $840

Graded EX 60 by SGC. Outstanding T207 Brown Background example of Boston Red Sox star "Smokey" Joe Wood, one of the most important star pitchers of the era. Wood is also a particularly scarce card in the set and among the rarest of all T207 cards issued with Recruit Little Cigars advertising backs. This is a superb example, with corners displaying light, even wear, and centering slightly to the top. Flawless surface and boldly printed reverse. Though not a Hall of Famer, "Smokey" Joe Wood was one of the best known and most legendary pitchers of the dead-ball era. This is a very attractive example of one of the key stars from the classic T207 Brown Background series.  Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $840
