(LOT 90)
T206 Johnny Evers "w/Bat-Cubs on Shirt" – Piedmont 150 Subjects/Factory 25 (PSA NM/MT 8) - "1 of 1 Piedmonts"; Only 1 Piedmont Example Graded Higher"!

Most advanced hobbyists would agree that T206 HOF subjects carrying "near mint" or higher grades are few and far between, and this magnificent PSA 8 Johnny Evers "w/Bat-Cubs on Shirt" Piedmont offering resides as one of the premier specimens on the planet. Consider that this is the SOLE PSA listed "Piedmont" at this hallowed tier with only a SINGLE "Piedmont" example graded higher! Every baseball purist is all too familiar with the iconic "Tinker to Evers to Chance" double-play combination that spearheaded the Cubs to their last 2 championships in 1907 and 1908.

Simply stated, Johnny Evers was an unquestionable "winner", also leading the 1914 miracle Boston Braves to a world championship. Synonymous with Evers winning ways is this irrefutable T206 champion cardboard artifact that has miraculously retained virtually all of its original pristine-like attributes. We cannot imagine a finer testament to Evers immortal legacy than this exalted offering that will unquestionably be highly coveted by hobby's foremost T206 enthusiasts. The seldom-surfacing T206 "Cubs on Shirt" likeness of the star 2nd sacker portrays a superior "pack-fresh" image via the seemingly flawless Evers batting pose affixed to the ultra-popular tranquil blue/green setting.

Atypical for this subject is the near-perfect centering between four absolutely blinding white borders, with the obverse side surface donning near-immaculate aesthetics. The razor-sharp perimeter edging includes four pinpoint corner tips and the bold Piedmont 150 Subjects" advertisement affixed to a somewhat off-white clean surface is this keepsake's final exclamation point! Arguably regarded by hobby experts as the "toughest" Johnny Evers T206 subject to obtain in high-grade, we highly advise the most esteemed T206 enthusiasts to capture it for their world-class ATC gathering!
