    1914 H813-3 Boston Garter (Sepia) Tris Speaker SGC Authentic - Only Two Graded Examples. The extremely rare 1914 Boston Garter Sepia series contains only ten baseball subjects with half becoming members of Baseball's Hall of Fame. Each example of these window display cards is hotly pursued because one can only guess how long it may be before the next one will become available. This set is so incredibly rare, SGC has only graded six of the ten advertised subjects! Their rarity is explained on the reverse as only one card was placed inside a box of Boston Garters, and only for retailers. They were probably given to a store's best customer.

    Offered is Hall of Fame outfielder Tris Speaker. Encapsulated SGC Authentic. This is one of only two examples of Speaker on record. Speaker has not been recorded by PSA. The card shows hand-cut edges, but every known example has this feature. One must wonder if they came that way to possibly fit inside the carton of garters. There is one crease in the upper right corner. Corners show a consistent rounding. The reverse has obvious staining. The full-figure portrait of Speaker is unique to the issue making this nothing short of a phenomenal card to add to your collection.
