1909-1911 T206 White Border Hughie Jennings One Hand - American Beauty Back - 1 of 1 - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,920

Graded EX 60 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher by SGC! Outstanding high-grade example of Detroit Tigers Hall of Famer Hughie Jennings (one hand showing variation) from the T206 White Border series featuring the scarce and very desirable American Beauty 460 advertising reverse. American Beauty is a scarce back, certainly 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 back. The offered card is exceptionally crisp and clean, with brilliant colors, a flawless image, even wear to the four corners, and centered to the left. The important reverse is perfectly clean, well centered, and boldly printed. This is an outstanding example of Hall of Famer Hughie Jennings in unparalleled high grade featuring a desirable and scarce American Beauty advertising back, worthy of the finest T206 set or Hall of Fame collection. Reserve $300. Estimate $500++. SOLD FOR $1,920
