    Description

    1909-11 T206 Drum Home Run Baker PSA Poor 1 - Only Three PSA-Graded Example! Old school baseball is filled with colorful nicknames but a select few stand head and shoulders above the rest. History comes to life with such unforgettable names like "The Grey Eagle" (Tris Speaker), "The Canton Cyclone" (Cy Young) and even "Death To Flying Things" (Robert Ferguson). On the written page, these names act as powerful insights of players long beyond this era. There are a few individuals, however, whose prolific greatness on the field earned them a name that became far more identifiable than the one given by his parents. Frank Baker is the prototypical example of this, as most fans to this day know of him simply as "Home Run" Baker.

    Baker affords T206 fans a selection of tobacco brands to choose from ranging from the most familiar "Piedmont" and "Sweet Caporal" brands to brands most will only dream to acquire and the "Drum Cigarettes" name ranks at the top of the "Most Wanted" list. Currently, only three lucky hobbyists will lay claim to owning this rarified combination.

    Graded PSA Poor 1. The overall total PSA pop is almost 800 submissions (w/any qualified). Only three have been confirmed with a Drum brand back. While condition is important we are just pleased this card exists. This card and one other are tied as the highest graded examples of this player/brand combination.
