1909-1911 T206 White Border "Happy" Smith - First Confirmed Example with Rare Uzit Back!

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $5,400

Presented is a very rare example of "Happy" Smith (Brooklyn) from the classic T206 set with an extremely desirable Uzit advertising reverse. According to, Uzit ranks as the sixth scarcest advertising back within the T206 set (out of thirty-nine). While Uzit-back T206s are noteworthy to begin with, the offered card is particularly special in that it is the first confirmed example of this pose to exist with a Uzit advertisement. Encapsulated by PSA as "Authentic" due to evidence of trimming, the offered example features brilliant colors, a crisp, flawless image, and perfect registration. Bright white borders with light, even wear to the four corners, and centered to the bottom left. The important Uzit advertising reverse is boldly printed and entirely clean. Presents as VG overall. This card is of extraordinary significance as the first confirmed example with this front-back combination and will be of great interest to T206 completists and rare-back collectors alike. Reserve $500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $5,400
