Offered is the rare O'Hara card from the T206 set, a significant variation rarity from the popular T206 White Border series. This is one of the rarest cards in the set, and is usually among the very last cards (not including "The Big Four") required by collectors to complete the T206 set. This card has been consistently recognized as a great rarity since the days of Jefferson Burdick. (In fact, Burdick singled out O'Hara and Demmitt, the other St. Louis variation in the set, along with Wagner, Plank, and Magie, as significant T206 rarities in the original American Card Catalog.) Although this card is in low grade (SGC FAIR 1.5, submitted by REA) due to various condition flaws, it remains especially desirable to many collectors as it presents a relatively affordable opportunity to acquire one of the legendary T206 rarities. This variation costs a fortune in high grade! Cards issued with Polar Bear tobacco were not well protected from the accompanying product; thus almost all O'Hara cards have at least some condition problems. This is a tremendous opportunity to acquire an affordable yet still attractive example of this key T206 rarity. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+.
