(LOT 16)
1909-11 T206 Walter Johnson Hands at Chest Tolstoi SGC 6.5 EX-NM+ - POP 1; Highest Graded Example on the COMBINED SGC & PSA Pop Charts!

POP 1 BIG TRAIN!!! Interchangeable with Walter Johnson's undisputed stature as baseball's greatest all-time pitcher comes this SGC 6.5 EX-NM+ T206 Tolstoi Hands at Chest offering that stands as the SOLE and HIGHEST GRADED example on the combined SGC and PSA Pop Charts! Indeed, only a single PSA 6.5 specimen can match this stand-alone SGC marvel that has outdistanced all of its inferior peers. The Big Train toed the MLB rubber for 21 years, compiling a modern-day record 417 wins, incomparable 110 shutouts, and 2.17 ERA, justifying his status as our National Pastime's pinnacle hurler.

T206 enthusiasts engage in serious tug-of-wars for capturing any scarce highest graded ad back examples, let alone one portraying the image of baseball's pinnacle twirler. Johnson's classic pitching pose reveals breathtaking hues as the flame-throwing right-hander prepares to unleash another blazing fastball. Although modestly favoring the left edge between four bright white corners, the imposing image, somewhat square corners with only subtle wear, and relatively clean surfaces justify the finest Tolstoi 6.5 assessment that proudly resides as the best of the best!
