    Description

    1910 D322 Tip Top Bread Honus Wagner SGC 60 EX 5. While the issue may not be familiar to the casual collector, the image most assuredly is. It's an artful reimagining of Carl Horner's definitive photographic portrait, the same image utilized for the creation of the short-printed T206 tobacco card which serves as the hobby's most coveted and valuable cardboard. Though the Tip Top issue has never achieved the pronounced level of fame that the industry's leading tobacco set enjoys, it's a strong contender in considerations of scarcity, aesthetics and historical import.

    Graded SGC 60 EX 5. Currently, just twenty-nine Tip Top Honus Wagner cards have found a home in an SGC capsule. Only three have graded EX with two outpacing the offered specimen's solid rating. The rather flimsy paper stock utilized in this set's creation is largely to blame for the scarcity and condition issues, but we find none of the typical creasing and tearing here that plagues the decimated surviving population.
