Graded PSA Mint 9, this card is one of two to have survived over a century seemingly never touched by human hands. Both are noted to have "Piedmont" brand reverse. No superlative seems suitably appropriate for a card such as this, a monumentally valuable and impressive piece as rare as a lightning strike on a lottery winner. Currently 280 of the well over 156,000 T206's encased in PSA holders bear a Mint 9 or better header. Less than 20% if that total census has graded an unqualified NM or better. The result is that collectors know that just a precious few ultra-high quality cards from this most beloved of tobacco issues still exist. This card is nothing short of a throw back in time. The front/back surfaces clean enough satisfy the most discriminating critic. The colors are probably as vibrant and clear as they were a century ago and the same can be said of the problem free print of the reverse. This is a fabulous example from a cornerstone issue ideally suited to act as the cornerstone of any vintage collection.
