(LOT 95)
1909 T206 Johnny Evers "w/Bat-Chicago on Shirt" – Sweet Caporal 350-460 Subjects/Factory 42 (PSA NM/MT 8) - "1 of 1 PSA Listed Sweet Caporal; HIGHET GRADED Example for ALL Ad Backs!"

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 NM/MT Johnny Evers "w/Bat-Cubs on Shirt" Sweet Caporal 35-460 Subjects offering resides as one of the premier specimens on the planet. Consider that this is the SOLE PSA listed "Sweet Caporal" at this hallowed tier with NONE Graded Higher for ALL advertisement backs. Indeed, this supreme offering proudly stands as the finest of its kind! Every baseball purist is all too familiar with the iconic "Tinker to Evers to Chance" double-play combination that spearheaded the Cubs to two consecutive 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. The seldom-surfacing high-grade T206 "Chicago 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-rich yellow/orange/green setting. Atypical for this subject is the near-perfect centering (only revealing a negligible and microscopic-like favoritism towards the upper edge) between four absolutely blinding white borders, with the obverse side surface portraying near-immaculate aesthetics. The razor-sharp perimeter edging includes four pinpoint corner tips and the verso depicts a bold red "Sweet Caporal 350-460 Subjects" advertisement. One of the "toughest" Johnny Evers T206 subjects to obtain in high-grade, we highly advise any esteemed T206 enthusiasts to capture it for their world-class ATC compilation!
