    Description

    1909-11 T206 Polar Bear Ray Demmitt (St. Louis) PSA EX-MT 6 - Pop Two, Only Two Higher. While excellence on the diamond is the surest path to trading card immortality, it is not the only path. Consider Ray Demmitt, a .246 batter for the New York Highlanders who was traded after his 1909 rookie campaign to the Browns of St. Louis. After just ten games of St. Louis service in 1910, recording only four hits in twenty-three at bats, Demmitt was unceremoniously dismissed to an Eastern League assignment for three seasons in the minors. Demmitt would scrap his way back to the Big Leagues in 1914, but the T206 issue had already closed up shop in 1911. Cards featuring Demmitt as a member of the team that would come to be known as the Yankees are somewhat readily available, it is the St. Louis variation that continues to confound collectors more than a century later. This is particularly true at the higher end of the condition spectrum.

    Offered is a 1909-11 T206 card featuring Ray Demmitt "St. Louis " team variation with the fully anticipated "Polar Bear" brand back. Overall, PSA has graded less than 200 cards which is very low for this series after the "Big Four." Our offered card is graded PSA EX-MT 6. This is one of only two graded EX-MT with just two graded higher. Colors remain bright with sharp left corners and light touches at right. Some minimal foxing must be reported on the obverse and the reverse where such modest condition concerns must be forgiven considering the circulation method.
