(LOT 27)
1909-11 T206 Roger Bresnahan "Portrait" Sweet Caporal 350/30 PSA 8 NM-MT

CATCHER/INNOVATOR!!! Roger Bresnahan changed the game of baseball for the better by developing protective equipment such as catching shin guards and the first batting helmet, likely saving the careers and possible lives of players for decades to come, especially given the penchants of Dead-Ball pitchers "owning" the inside of the plate! That alone did not garner him induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame, but rather his expert handling of pitching staffs over his 17-year career that included a World Series win in 1905. The offered 1909-11 T206 Roger Bresnahan "Portrait" Sweet Caporal 350/30 PSA 8 NM-MT is equally worthy of enshrinement in Cooperstown. This one of a kind, top of the pops "portrait" card of The Duke of Tralee presents snow-white borders that culminate at pinpoint corners. This colorful face displays no surface flaws with the reverse as consistent as the front, appearing as pack-fresh as it could be. With only 13 total PSA-graded examples at this lofty plateau, this super-rare Bresnahan in the highest grade would be on virtually every T206 collector's want list.

MIN BID $1,750
