1909 T204 Ramly Cigarettes Frank Bancroft - Square Frame

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $3,300

Graded FAIR 20 by SGC (submitted by REA). Scarce T204 Ramly Square Frame variation of Cincinnati manager Frank Bancroft. This is one of only two examples of Bancroft with a "square frame" ever to be graded by SGC. All Square Frame variations are extremely rare. Six players in the T204 Ramly set are known to exist with this distinctive design. Only a few examples of each T204 Square Frame card are known, and each is far rarer than many of the most well known tobacco-card rarities such as the T206 Wagner or Plank. This is an attractive sample with a crisp portrait image and scattered creasing, which does not detract from the card's overall visual appeal. The blank back is clean. This is an exceptional sample of one of the rarest variations from the classic T204 Ramly set. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open).

SOLD FOR $3,300
