Every collector, from beginner to world-class hobbyist, knows that the T206 Honus Wagner card is considered the premier pasteboard in the entire hobby. As the story goes, Wagner didn't want to be associated with the tobacco industry and had his T206 card halted from production, leaving the hobby with was is commonly thought to be 60-70 surviving copies. Perhaps Wagner had a change of heart or just stopped "fighting the good fight" at some point as here he is, "The Flying Dutchman" on this T216 Kotton Cigarettes issue, graded SGC 4 VG/EX. The card is extremely well-centered for the issue and delivers a delightfully colorful presentation of Wagner in his batting stance, supported by a deep red backdrop. The corners and edges are in line with the VG/EX grade, with consistently mild to moderate touches that do little to impact the overall aesthetic. The reverse is pleasing as well, delivering a robust advertisement for Kotton Cigarettes, a branch of People's Tobacco of New Orleans. It's not a T206 Wagner, but if you think about it, in a lot of ways it's even better!
1911-16 Kotton Cigarettes T216 Honus Wagner Batting 2B SGC 4 VG-EX
