    1911 T205 Hassan R. Hoblitzell, No Stats SGC 60 EX 5 - Among The Finest Known! From concept to production, without careful planning any trading card project can become an unorganized mess very quickly. Even the most cautious quality control steps can miss small details until any given quantity of cards have been printed. The most famous example of this is the T206 "Magie" spelling error which commands thousands of dollars regardless of the condition. The rarest of the T205 variations is the card of Cincinnati Reds first baseman Richard Hoblitzell without playing statistics on the back. How rare is the "No Stats" Hoblitzell? To date, SGC has graded over three dozen "Magie" errors and T206 Eddie Plank cards but only five confirmed copies of the Hoblitzell "no stats" have been recorded. This solid middle grade copy has been graded SGC 60 EX 5 making it one of the highest graded examples known to the hobby. Any T205 fan would be thrilled to own even a deplorable example of this rarity to gain one extremely difficult step closer to completion. The card shows mild corner wear, shows no creases or wrinkles and is perfectly centered. The colors are bright and the metallic gold ink border shows no unsightly green oxidation. The Hassan brand reverse is very clean without even a spot of tobacco staining. This is a prime opportunity to acquire one of the finest known examples of a premier variation in the hobby.
