1912 T207 Brown Background Turkey Mike Donlin - Broadleaf Back!

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,560

Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Crisp and clean example of T207 "Turkey Mike" Donlin, one of the most important great stars of the era and the set, and by chance also one of the rare cards in the set. Today collectors recognize many cards as being of various degrees of rarity in the T207 set including “Turkey Mike" Donlin. Bold colors, even corner wear, and a flawless surface. Clean and boldly printed Broadleaf Cigarettes advertisement on reverse. Though not a Hall of Famer, "Turkey Mike" Donlin was one of best known and most legendary players of the dead-ball era. He was also a superb hitter. He batted over .300 ten times in twelve Major League seasons, and hit .356 with a league-high of 124 runs scored in 1905. A very attractive example of this important rarity from the classic T207 Brown Background series. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,560
