    1911 T205 Sweet Caporal Joe Tinker PSA NM-MT 8 - Pop Four, None Higher. Hall of Famer Joe Tinker was the shortstop of the famous "Tinker, to Evers, to Chance" double play combination. His career lasted fifteen years as a player but the native son of Muscotah, KS also managed for four years leading the Chicago Whales to the 1915 Federal League championship. He also played in four World Series from 1906-10 assuring himself a place in all of the major trading card releases of the era.

    Graded PSA NM-MT 8. One of only four to grade NM-MT with none rated higher. It is an absolute stunner. An extremely strong representation from the landmark issue. The remarkable graphics feature vivid colors, tight registration and precise centering. The back displays "Sweet Caporal" advertising in red. You're probably wondering when exactly was the last time a NM-MT card like this was available at auction? Our databases show it was 2008 and it was this exact card. Only one-half of one-percent of the well over 36,000 T205 cards graded by PSA hold this or a more lofty assessment.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
