Lot # 255 (of 1512)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1909-1911 T206 White Border Joe "Iron Man" McGinnity - Broad Leaf 350 Back - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $4,500

Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! Superb example of one of the rarest of all T206 advertising reverses: the Broad Leaf 350 series. Broad Leaf 350 Series backs are unusual and very rare, though not quite as rare as the rarest T206 advertising backs (such as Broad Leaf 460 series, Drum, or Uzit). According to, the Broad Leaf 350 series back ranks as the ninth scarcest on its list of thirty-nine different T206 advertising backs. The obverse features Hall of Famer Joe "Iron Man" McGinnity with the Newark minor-league team with a bright, crisp image, vibrant colors, near-perfect centering, and even wear to the corners. The important advertising reverse is boldly printed and centered to the top. To date, SGC has only graded two examples of McGinnity with a Broad Leaf 350 reverse (the offered VG/EX 50 and a GOOD 30), while PSA has graded only a single example (FAIR 1.5). This is an outstanding high-grade T206 example of Hall of Famer Joe McGinnity, ideally featuring one of the premier T206 rare backs. Reserve $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $4,500
