    1909-11 T206 Piedmont 150 Rube Waddell (Throwing) PSA Mint 9 - Pop Two, None Higher! The T206 series was the most comprehensive set of baseball cards since the late-1880's. They highlight a brief and exciting era - a golden age as some call it - from 1909 to 1911. It has been well over a century and their popularity still has not lessened. The offered "Throwing" card is of Hall of Fame pitcher Rube Waddell, now with the St. Louis Browns. Waddell was perhaps the flakiest and most undependable major league star of all time. He was a man known to show up "under the weather" for games regularly. His legendary manager Connie Mack once remarked, "The Rube has a two million dollar body and a two cent head." Matching boundless talent with erratic behavior born of mental illness and alcohol abuse, the hurler was both a manager's dream and nightmare. Waddell won 193 games and was a two-time ERA leader over his 13-year career and in 1946 was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

    Graded PSA Mint 9. Accounting for all brands on the census, this is one of two graded MINT with none rated higher. The knee-high portrait has yet to show any signs of aging. Colors are bold and registration it precise leaving a striking image with sharp details. The borders are a bright frosty white. The opportunity to acquire Mint condition T206 Hall of Fame players does not present itself very often. This special auction is the exception to that rule and once they are in private collections they will remain there - treasured and appreciated for a long time.
