1909-1911 T206 White Border Ray Demmitt - St. Louis Americans Variation
Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $1,800
Graded GOOD 2 by PSA. Offered is the rare Demmitt card from the T206 set, a significant variation rarity from the popular T206 White Border series. Demmitt, St. Louis Americans, is one of the rarest cards in the set, and is usually among the very last cards (not including "The Big Four") required by collectors to complete the T206 set. This card has been always recognized as a great rarity, since the days of Jefferson Burdick. (In fact, Burdick singled out Demmitt and O'Hara, the other St. Louis variation in the set, along with Wagner, Plank, and Magie, as significant T206 rarities in the original American Card Catalog.) The offered example is especially attractive despite its modest assigned grade. Bold colors, crisp image, perfect centering, and even rounding to the corners. A few scattered creases, which blend into the deep orange background, are responsible for the assigned grade. The Polar Bear reverse is bold and clean. This variation costs a fortune in high grade! This is a tremendous opportunity to acquire a relatively affordable, extremely attractive example of this key T206 rarity. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,800
