1909-1911 T206 White Border Sherry Magie - Error SGC VG/EX 50

Starting Bid - $5,000, Sold For - $20,400

Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC (submitted by REA). Superb high-grade example of T206 Sherry Magie (Magee), one of card collecting's most legendary rarities. To date, SGC has evaluated a total of fifty-seven Magie error cards; the offered example is one of only three at this level with just six higher. This is a particularly strong card, one of the best and highest-grade examples we have ever seen. (In fact, we have never offered a higher-grade example.) Wagner, Plank, Magie, and Doyle/NY Nat'l (hands above head) are the baseball-card rarities that have long been referred to as "The Big Four" from the T206 White Borders series. These four baseball cards have traditionally represented the height of rarity, desirability, and value in the baseball-card world. This is a magnificent example of T206 Magie. Crisp and clean, with flawless bright colors, superb centering, light, even wear to the corners, and a few insignificant wrinkles visible under close inspection. It is particularly rare to find such an attractive example of this card. The reverse of the card features a crisply printed advertisement for Piedmont Cigarettes (150 Subjects, Factory No. 25). This is an exceptional high-grade example of this legendary rarity, which would be at home in any collection of T206 or important baseball cards. Reserve $5,000. Estimate $10,000++. SOLD FOR $20,400
