Graded GOOD 2 by SGC. Presented is an exceptional low-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 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 a crisp image, light corner wear, and centering slightly toward the top. Downgraded due to a few spots of chipping (on the top border and on Johnson's shoulder) along with some moderate discoloration on both the front and reverse. This is an exceptionally attractive low-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 $2,500.
