    1909-11 T206 Sweet Caporal 350-460/42OP Napoleon Lajoie (With Bat) PSA NM 7 - The Highest PSA-Graded factory 42 Overprint. The time was called the "Dead Ball Era" but somehow Napoleon Lajoie, one of the finest hitters of all time, managed to amass over 1,700 hits, 379 doubles and an eye catching .352 batting average from 1901 through 1910 and would retire with five American League batting titles. In 1914, Lajoie batted .426 which is still the fourth highest single-season average of all-time. He made the "3,000 Hits Club" a trio joining Cap Anson and Honus Wagner.

    Offered is a 1909-11 T206 card featuring Nap Lajoie (With Bat) with a "Sweet Caporal - 350-460 Subjects" ad with a scarce factory 42 caption. Our offered card is graded PSA NM 7. Striking colors define a precisely centered portrait with precision registration to match. Overall, PSA has graded over 700 cards. This is one of only three confirmed with this brand/series/factory overprint combination. Currently, this is the one and only card graded NM with none graded higher this rare overprint.
