DESCRIPTION
Graded GOOD 30 by SGC. The T206 of Eddie Plank has always been one of card collecting's greatest and most sought after rarities. The American Card Catalog was first published in the 1930s and even at that time, Plank was listed as the second most valuable of all cards at a then incredible $10. This was at a time when the most valuable card, the T206 Wagner, was listed at $50. Very pleasing low-grade example of this legendary rarity displays evenly rounded corners, a light horizontal crease through Plank's chin, moisture stains at the top, and a diagonal crease near the upper left corner. The back features an advertisement for Sweet Caporal Cigarettes. One of the great things about card collecting is that cards are valued by collectors in all grades, and serious collections can be assembled on different budgets. Not many can afford the $200,000+ that a T206 Plank would sell for in Nr/Mt-Mt condition, if one were to be available, but many more collectors of T206, the most important and popular set of the era, can consider a lower-grade example. This is a very attractive card, and though it does have flaws, it does not have the terrible scuffs and countless creases that are usually associated with this card in this grade. This is an outstanding opportunity to acquire an attractive yet still relatively affordable example (compared to higher-grade examples) of this legendary rarity, long recognized as one of baseball-card collecting’s “top three” (the other two being T206 Wagner and 1933 Goudey Lajoie). Good condition. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000/$10,000+.
