Description

    1909-11 T206 Piedmont Nap Lajoie, Throwing SGC 82 EX/NM+ 6.5 - Pop One, Highest Confirmed Brand/Pose! Napoleon Lajoie was one of Cleveland's most beloved figures, so popular in his day that the ballclub was nicknamed the "Naps" in his honor. The team would take on its current "Indians" designation only upon his departure in 1915. The turn-of-the-century hero was renowned for being among the finest ballplayers both on and off the field. Lajoie's talents were at the top of the sport earning him elite status with others of his day such as Young, Mathewson, Johnson, Wagner and Cobb. Graded SGC 82 EX/NM+ 6.5, the only confirmed Piedmont throwing at this level, five unknown pose examples are recorded higher. Corners are strong, slight edge abrasion and some bottom border toning. Magnificent centering and almost no evident wear makes this a powerfully nice example for the grade.
