    Description

    1909-11 T206 Piedmont 150 Rube Waddell (Portrait) PSA NM-MT 8 - Pop Four, Only One Higher With This Brand & Series. Quality so unexpectedly strong that it's startling. Charles Edward "Rube" Waddell was perhaps the flakiest and most undependable major league star of all time, known to show up drunk for games regularly. His legendary manager Connie Mack once remarked, "The Rube has a two million dollar body and a two cent head." Matching boundless talent with erratic behavior born of mental illness and alcohol abuse, the hurler was both a manager's dream and nightmare. Despite his frailties, Waddell was inducted into Cooperstown in 1946. His two appearances in the T206 edition are among his most popular card collectibles. Our offered card is both popular and a condition rarity. Of the now more than 250,000 submissions to date of this fabled tobacco set, fewer than 1.5% have achieved the ranking of NM-MT or higher.

    Offered is a 1909-11 T206 card featuring Rube Waddell "Portrait" variant with a "Piedmont - 150 Subjects" ad with a factory 25 caption. Overall, PSA has graded almost 675 cards. Our offered card is graded PSA NM-MT 8. There are just over 75 confirmed with this brand/series combination. This is one of only four graded NM-MT with just one graded higher.
