Description

1909-11 T206 Sweet Caporal Eddie Plank PSA VG 3. Like a schoolboy in fond imitation of his older brother, the T206 Plank hits all the same notes as the fabled Wagner, likewise troubling generations of collectors working to compile a complete set of this most beloved of tobacco issues. Theories for the scarcity of this card paying tribute to Connie Mack's superstar southpaw are identical to the Wagner tales, with aversion to tobacco advertisement and contractual stalemate with the American Tobacco Company the most commonly referenced causes. Recognized baseball card census figures find the populations of these two cards well within striking distance of one another.

Though "Gettysburg Eddie" will probably never dethrone his Pirates contemporary as the key card in the T206 set, the presented example should logically be considered its trading card equal. Graded VG 3 by the experts at PSA, the proffered Plank exhibits only modest corner rounding and a slight reverse wrinkle to suggest its age, with the face remaining clean and well-placed within its four borders. Of seventeen examples to have been holstered within an PSA capsule, just four have been deemed superior to this one. With this Plank, one determined collector could clear one of the three toughest T206 hurdles laid by this classic set.

HA is a traditional auction house, they set up their auctions slightly different from typical domain auctions. This works well, it seems to be a good mix of old age (live bidding in a prestigious hotel) and new age (online bidding).
