    1909 T204 T.T.T. Cigarettes Jesse Burkett Oval Frame SGC EX/NM 80. An absolutely exceptional specimen, worthy of glowing praise on a number of fronts. Most importantly, it is the earliest and most significant card attributed to this early Dead Ball legend, and the only noteworthy issue dating to his active baseball life, as manager of the Worcester Club of the Atlantic Association. Next we must address the gorgeous design of the issue itself, with elegant golden foil highlighting intricate scroll work that rings the fine center portrait. Condition is the third jewel in the crown, as this offering represents the highest grade, by far, of the few submitted to SGC. And of the fourteen to pass through the offices of PSA, perhaps only two could hold a candle to this one, leaving it in the most elite of company. Just a few pinpoints of wear to the wonderfully balanced gold borders spare the card from absolute perfection, and it would not surprise us in the slightest if a resubmission bumped this representation to the status of "finest known on earth."
