1909-1911 T206 White Border Ray Demmitt - St. Louis Americans Variation

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $840

Offered is the rare Demmitt card from the T206 set, a significant variation rarity from the popular T206 White Border series. This 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.) Although this card is in low grade (PR-FR 1 by PSA) due to various condition flaws, it remains especially desirable to many collectors as it presents a relatively affordable opportunity to acquire one of the legendary T206 rarities. This variation costs a fortune in high grade! Cards issued with Polar Bear tobacco were not well protected from the accompanying product; thus almost all Demmitt cards have at least some condition problems including tobacco staining (the offered example displays very light remnants of tobacco staining on the reverse). This is a tremendous opportunity to acquire an affordable example of this key T206 rarity. Reserve $200. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $840
