    1909-11 T206 Sweet Caporal 350-460/42 Frank Chance (Portrait-Yellow) PSA Mint 9 - Overall, Pop Two With None Higher! The terminus of the most famous double-play triumvirate in Major League history, Frank Chance appears here with the confident gaze of a man certain that the World Championship ways of his Chicago Cubs would continue, unaware that the three-season production span of the T206 issue would begin 108 years of Windy City suffering. But if a return to supremacy was over a century in the future when this card was hatched from a Dead Ball Era cigarette pack, this elite specimen was not only never expected to ever remain untouched and will almost certainly remain unsurpassed for eternity ceremoniously housed beneath a Mint header.

    Graded PSA Mint 9. Currently, PSA has graded over 1,200 examples. Only seventeen have been confirmed with this brand/series & factory combination. It should come as no surprise to know this is the highest graded with this elusive combination. Beyond the veritable absence of wear, the ancient cardboard slab is cut to razor-sharp perfection, and boasts perfect color, gloss and registration. The bold hues of the portrait background make this one of the most eye-catching entries in the T206 issue, and the spectacular condition here amplifies the effect most agreeably.
