(LOT 201)
Extremely Rare T206 Broad Leaf 350 Ossee Schreck (Schreckengost) PSA 3 VG - "Pop 1"; Highest PSA Graded Example!

Presented here is a spectacular PSA 3 VG Broad Leaf 350 specimen of 1909 Columbus Senators catcher/first baseman Oscar Schreckengost, who played 11 MLB seasons prior to his T206 issue. For simplicity purposes, Oscar's extensive surname was shortened to "Schreck" on his T206 subject, with this Broad Leaf 350 scarcity the sole PSA 3 and highest graded example of the two meager PSA encapsulated copies. The renowned T206 Resource website lists the Broad Leaf 350 ad back as the ninth rarest T206 cigarette verso, with its paucity level surpassing other obscure ad backs such as Carolina Brights, Brown Hindu, Blank Backs, Sovereign 460, Cycle 460, El Principe De Gales, and American Beauty 460, just to mention a few.

As "icing on the cake", this eclectic PSA 3 marvel presents itself in a fine eye pleasing state, highlighted by a well-centered Ossee "Schreck" portrait image that resides between four relatively clean white borders. Several light horizontal creases to the left of Schreck's right ear as well as even corner wear prevent a higher assessment, and the most significant BROAD LEAF 350 SUBJECTS verso has eluded any obtrusive flaws. One of the most sought-after T206 ad backs, this "Pop 1" highest graded Broad Leaf 350 subject prize merits a final resting place in any world-class T206 rare-back collection!
