    Description

    1902-11 W600 Sporting Life (Type 4) Honus Wagner (Uniform) SGC 60 EX 5 - Pop One, One Higher. An exquisite Carl Horner photograph of the Hall of Fame shortstop acts as the centerpiece of this extraordinary 5-1/4" x 7-1/2" premium artifact. The dignified likeness is the same illustration employed on Wagner's famed T206 collectible, a storied piece with which this large and impressive cabinet arguably shares equivalent rarity. The image is captioned with Wagner's name, club affiliation, and position; the surround features an embossed advertisement for Sporting Life, the publication to which the hobby is indebted for producing the spectacular W600's, circa 1902-11. Upholding all of the grace and splendor inherent in the period studio-cabinet portraits it was designed to emulate, this portrayal, not surprisingly, stands as a dominating one. It's fully capable of taking over the stage when arrayed with items that might be similarly scarce, but which suffer in comparison to top-drawer expression of the photographer's art and the cabinet's painstakingly crafted construction.

    Graded SGC 60 EX 5. As befits an awe-inspiring relic that projects such physical grandeur, this copy holds "Pop One With One Higher" distinction, standing close to the peak of a meager census that lists a dozen examples, in total. It must be emphasized that this cabinet's Horner presentation of Wagner is timeless, having maintained dramatically sharp fidelity through the passage of a full century.

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