1909-1911 T206 White Border Walter Johnson Hands at Chest - Rare Red Hindu Back!

Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $8,400

Graded VG/EX+ 55 by SGC. Hands-at-chest pose of Hall of Fame pitcher Walter Johnson with the extremely rare red Hindu Cigarettes advertisement on the back. This is easily one of the most extraordinary of all T206 front and rare advertising-back combinations! Red Hindu backs are striking, unusual, and extremely rare. According to T206Resource.com, the red Hindu back is the seventh toughest back (out of thirty-nine). Even a sample of a common player is tough to find, and examples featuring Hall of Famers are naturally rarer still, especially considering that the total checklist of confirmed T206 red Hindu back examples to date is just forty-three different subjects. This remarkable example has very strong eye-appeal, both front and back, with no creases, bold color, even wear to the corners, and perfect centering. The red Hindu print on the reverse is flawless and bold. This is an exceptional high-grade example of one of the rarest and most desirable T206 Hall of Famer front and rare advertising-back combinations in existence. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000++. SOLD FOR $8,400
