    1902-11 W600 Sporting Life - Type 2 Honus Wagner (Street Clothes-John "Hans" Wagner) SGC 60 EX 5!




    The exquisite Carl Horner photograph of the Hall of Fame shortstop acts as the centerpiece of this series as the source employed on Wagner's famed T206 appearance. His other portrait gave the hobby the regal and dignified likeness of "Hans" Wagner in Street clothes that was employed for the Flying Dutchmen's rookie card debut in the historical E107 Breisch Williams edition. The same image is used here, the central image of these large and impressive cabinets unarguably holds a highly elevated level glamour and rarity. The hobby is indebted to the Sporting Life for producing these spectacular treasures.

    Graded SGC 60 EX 5. As befits an awe-inspiring relic, this copy holds "1 of 1" distinction as the only confirmed "Street Clothes" variant with the "John "Hans" Wagner" caption. It shares the top status of just nine examples graded to date with that same caption. It must be emphasized that this cabinet's Horner presentation of Wagner is close to perfection, having maintained dramatically crisp fidelity. The corner wear is superficial. The surfaces are surprisingly clean and problem-free for a premium-sized card treasure. The back remains free of surface damage or any ink/pencil notations so commonly found with this issue. Truly a premier item worthy of reverence among even within the most advanced collectors.
