    1911-16 T216 Kotton Honus Wagner, Batting 2b. SGC 45 VG+ 3.5. When a total of only seven confirmed examples of a Honus Wagner card have been graded it is irrefutable evidence of the extreme scarcity T216 Peoples Tobacco cards with the "Kotton" Cigarettes reverse truly have. With an extremely limited geographical distribution within the southern region, the Kotton brand sits high on the list of tobacco brands missing from most vintage collections. The player is Honus Wagner, his exploits need no extra elaborating here, and this is his "Batting" pose more familiar to "E" hobbyists than tobacco fans with the "2b. Pittsburgh Nat'l." caption. When some rounding of the corners and creasing almost exclusively affecting the lower right corner is the full condition report for a T216 you should not pass on a rarely offered treasure in exemplary condition. Graded SGC 45 VG+ 3.5, one of a total of only seven confirmed examples of this pose/caption graded to date. One of two at this grade level, there is just one rated higher.

    Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am regarding the sale of my hockey jersey. You were great to work with, you answered all my phone calls and e-mails in a prompt manner, and you did a great job marketing the jersey.
