    1902-11 W600 Sporting Life Honus Wagner - Street Clothes SGC 60 EX 5! The exquisite Carl Horner photograph of the Hall of Fame shortstop acts as the centerpiece of this series as the source employed on Wagner's famed T206 appearance. His other portrait gave the hobby the regal and dignified likeness of "Hans" Wagner in Street clothes that was employed for the Flying Dutchmen's rookie card debut in the historical E107 Breisch Williams edition. The same image is used here, the central image of these large and impressive cabinets unarguably holds a highly elevated level glamour and rarity. The hobby is indebted to the Sporting Life for producing these spectacular treasures. The portrait seems all too appropriate for upholding the regality needed to complement the most revered portraits in the hobby.

    Graded SGC 60 EX 5. As befits an awe-inspiring relic, this copy holds "1 of 1" distinction, standing at the top of just six examples graded to date. It must be emphasized that this cabinet's Horner presentation of Wagner is close to perfection, having maintained dramatically crisp fidelity. Some mild wear at the corners and a light crease very close to the upper left corner ends what is a wonderfully brief condition report. The corner wear is superficial. The surfaces are surprisingly clean and problem free for a premium sized card treasure unaffected by the tape and thumb tacks used for bedroom wall display. The back remains free surface damage or any ink/pencil notations so commonly found with this issue. Truly a premier item worthy of being revered among even within the most advanced collections.
