This spectacular PSA 8 Frank Chance "Batting" T206 Piedmont Cigarettes Sweet Caporal 350-460 Subjects offering stands as one of only 2 Sweet Caps on the PSA "Pop" Chart with a SOLE specimen graded higher! Similar to Frank Chance's "Turn of the Century" iconic stature, this cardboard marvel resides as one of the finest of its kind. Nicknamed the "Peerless Leader", Frank Chance will eternally be remembered as the final link in the immortal "Tinker to Evers to Chance" double play combination. While a fine 1st baseman and batsman, Chance's place in Cooperstown was solidified by his managerial success.

From 1906 – 1910 he led the Cubs to four pennants in five years including two World Championships, a feat that should in no way be underestimated for it took the Cubs 108 years to claim the next championship! His representation on this spectacular offering is, likewise, championship caliber including a sparkling batting pose, brilliant orange/green background hues, bright white borders, fine centering and brilliant surfaces. One of the more impressive Sweet Caporal Cigarettes Frank Chance batting subjects, its breathtaking aesthetics and extremely low PSA "Pop" standing merit it a final resting place in any esteemed tobacco gathering!
