1909-1911 T206 White Border Chief Bender Trees in Background - Broad Leaf 350 Back - The ONLY Graded Example!

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $5,100

Graded GOOD 2 by PSA. Outstanding example of Philadelphia Athletics Hall of Famer Chief Bender (trees in background) featuring one of the rarest of all T206 advertising reverses: the Broad Leaf 350 series. This is the ONLY example of Bender (trees in background) featuring a Broad Leaf 350 reverse ever graded (at any level) by PSA and SGC! (PSA only started designating advertising backs within the past few years, so it is theoretically possible that another example with a Broad Leaf back shows as unclassified in its Population Report, but we would have no way of knowing). 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 offered card is bright and crisp, with vibrant colors, even rounding to the corners, a few light wrinkles, and centering slightly to the bottom. The important advertising reverse is boldly printed and well centered. This is a very rare and desirable T206 example of Hall of Famer Chief Bender, ideally featuring one of the premier T206 rare backs. Reserve $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $5,100
