(LOT 17)
1909-11 T206 Eddie Collins Blank Back SGC Authentic - Only Known Copy!

POP 1 TOBACCO RARITY!!! T206 Blank Back specimens are extremely rare, with these highly coveted type cards listed as one of the top 10 scarcest T206 backs on the esteemed T206 Resource website. In fact, their #10 scarcity ranking places them as more elusive issues than other popular T206 ad-backs such as Carolina Brights, Brown Hindu, American Beauty 460 and Cycle 460! That said, presented here is an SGC Authentic T206 Blank Back tobacco card of the immortal HOF second-sacker Eddie Collins. To the best of our knowledge, this incredible T206 offering resides as the only known example on the planet!

The scant number of existing Blank Back T206s were hand-cut from a factory-issued scrapper sheet (most likely by factory workers), with surviving specimens few and far between. Like most known examples, this Eddie Collins memento portrays wavy edges and small borders due to its irregular manual cut. Yet, it is the stellar central image, bold crimson background, and relatively clean blank verso that steal the show for this miraculous Collins rarity. T206 purists will surely sound the alarm for this POP 1 tobacco heirloom that, tantamount to the legendary stature of Eddie Collins, stands tall as one of his scarcest and most elusive cardboard marvels!
