(LOT 115)
T206 Vic Willis "w/Bat-St. Louis" – Sweet Caporal 350 Subjects/Factory 30 (PSA NM/MT 8) - "1 of 1" Sweet Caporal; NO Sweet Caps Graded Higher!

Here is one you don't see in extremely high grade! Presented here is one of the finest cardboard representations for Hall of Fame right-hander Vic Willis, an outstanding "Batting" Sweet Caporal 350 Subjects example in a PSA 8 holder. Its "rare for the grade" notion is justified its SOLE and HIGHEST GRADED standing at this lofty plateau! One of the "dead-ball" era's most underrated pitchers, Hall of Famer Vic Willis won 20 or more games eight different occasions including a spectacular 24 wins in his inaugural 1898 season with the Boston Braves.

He joined the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1906, and posted 22 wins in the Pirates 1909 championship season. Likewise, the "jaw-dropping" aesthetics of this monumental artifact also depicts championship caliber with the hallowed Willis batting image portraying rich hues and encompassed by bright white borders. Pinpoint corners, clean surfaces and a virtually immaculate "Sweet Caporal Cigarettes 350 Subjects" ad back complete this extraordinary heirloom that stands alone at the top of the PSA "Pop" charts as the finest Sweet Cap subject of its kind!
