1909-1911 T206 Walter Johnson Rare Red Hindu Back

Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $13,035

Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Hands-at-chest pose of Hall of Fame pitcher Walter Johnson with the extremely rare Hindu Cigarettes (red print) advertisement on the back. This is easily one of the most extraordinary of all T206 front and rare advertising back combinations. Red Hindu backs are striking, unusual, and extremely rare. Even a sample of a common player is one of the most difficult to find of all T206 advertising backs. Examples featuring a key Hall of Famer such as Walter Johnson is almost unheard of, especially considering that the total checklist of confirmed T206 Red Hindu back examples to date is just forty-six different subjects. This is only the second Red Hindu Walter Johnson that we have ever seen. The card has very strong eye appeal, both front and back, with no creases, bold color, even wear to the corners, and perfect centering. The Red Hindu print on the reverse is flawless and bold. This is an exceptional high-grade example of one of the rarest and most desirable T206 Hall of Famer front and rare advertising back combinations in existence. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+. SOLD FOR $13,035
