(LOT 94)
1909-11 T206 Piedmont 150 Subjects/Factory 25 Eddie Plank Missing Ink Variation PSA Authentic - One of Only Five Known T206 Piedmont Planks!

PIEDMONT PLANK!!! Finishing a close second to the exalted T206 Wagner are its T206 Plank brethren, with both of these cardboard icons sharing the distinction of being the two most celebrated ATC tobacco cards. The illustrious legacy of the T206 Wagner correlates to his alleged disdain for promoting tobacco products to children, prompting him to discontinue the use of the exalted Wagner illustration on his T206 subject. At one time, there was strong conjecture that the minimal number of Eddie Plank examples was likewise linked to a similar contempt for his image being used to promote cigarettes. As time evolved, hobby conjecture ultimately frowned upon this theory as it relates to Eddie Plank since his image was utilized during the Sweet Caporal 350 Subject series.
