Graded VG 3 by PSA. Presented is an exceptional mid-grade example of Hall of Famer Walter Johnson (Washington Senators) from the T204 Ramly set, one of the most popular of all 1910-era tobacco issues. This is one of tobacco-card collecting's great classics. One of Walter Johnson's rarest cards, it is also universally recognized as the key card from the Ramly Tobacco set. Ramlys, which are highly prized among collectors for their distinctive style and rarity, are among the most condition-sensitive sets in existence, with fragile gold borders easily susceptible to chipping. The offered example has light rounding to the corners, minor wear on the edges, and a few unobtrusive creases. The reverse is fairly clean with bold black print. This is an exceptionally attractive mid-grade example of the key card from one of tobacco-card collecting's most highly respected and beautifully designed sets. This card would be a significant highlight in any world-class T204 Ramly, Walter Johnson, or classic-card collection. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000+.
