1909 T204 Ramly Tobacco Eddie Plank

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $4,500

Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Presented is a classic portrait image of Hall of Famer Eddie Plank from the prized T204 Ramly series. Plank is one of the most desirable cards in the set, both due to his stature as one of the few key Hall of Famers in the set, and the fact that the portrait is the same as that which appears on his famous T206 card. (Interesting note: The T204 Plank is much rarer than the T206 Plank. The PSA Population Report confirms this observation, with forty T206 Planks graded to date, compared to just twelve T204 Planks.) The Ramly series is universally recognized as one of the most desirable of all the tobacco-card issues, appreciated by collectors both for its rarity and distinctive style. Plank is one of only fifteen Hall of Famers in the Ramly Tobacco set. The card is well centered with four square corners. The portrait is flawless. Clean both front and back, and with a boldly printed reverse. The card has been downgraded by PSA due to wear to the gold border in the upper left corner; the card is otherwise Near Mint. This is one of only four VG-EX 4s graded by PSA to date, with just five examples graded higher in the entire population report. This is a very attractive example of one of baseball's most popular Hall of Famers from this beautiful and extremely condition-sensitive set. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+++. SOLD FOR $4,500
