1909-1911 T206 White Border Frank Chance Portrait Yellow SGC NM 84 - Sovereign Back - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,560

Graded NM 84 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher by SGC. Extraordinary ultra high-grade example of Chicago Cubs Hall of Famer Frank Chance (portrait, yellow background) from the T206 White Border series. Aside from its high grade, this card is notable for its Sovereign 350 advertising reverse. Sovereign is a scarce back, not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and seen far less often than the standard Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising backs. The offered card is perfectly bright, crisp, and clean. It has a bold yellow background, near-flawless registration, four strong corners, and is centered slightly to the bottom. The important reverse is well centered and perfectly clean. This is a stunning example of this popular Hall of Famer from the classic T206 set with a particularly desirable advertising reverse. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $1,560
