1911 T217 Mono Cigarettes George Wheeler - 1 of 1 - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,440

Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher. Only five T217 Monos of any subject have ever graded EX/NM 80 out of 128 cards graded by SGC to date, with none higher. PSA has only graded a total of thirty-seven cards from the set, with the highest graded being EX-MT 6. Extremely rare ultra high-grade sample card of 1911 T217 Mono Cigarettes featuring George Wheeler of Los Angeles. The reverse of the card has the Mono Cigarettes advertisement in bold blue printing. The 25-card T217 Mono Cigarettes set is one of the rarest of all Pacific Coast League issues and also one of the rarest of all 1910-era tobacco-card issues. The card is very well centered (slightly to the bottom), with a flawless image, and four sharp corners (a slight hint of wear on the top two corners). The back is clean and crisp. This very attractive sample card from this rare and desirable Pacific Coast League series. From the Dan Gantt Collection. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++. SOLD FOR $1,440
