    1909-11 T206 Sweet Caporal 350-460/25 Walter Johnson (Hands at Chest) PSA Mint 9 - Pop Three, None Higher! Marvelous profile image captures the calm before the storm unleashed by the Big Train's rocket right arm, one that Ty Cobb called, "the most powerful arm ever turned loose in a ball park." Johnson is honored twice in the tobacco era's most celebrated issue--this is his "Hands at Chest" pose and it is a blazer. This condition rarity displays a "Sweet Caporal Cigarettes" brand reverse.

    Just twenty-three years old when the T206 issue enjoyed the last of its three-year release, Johnson had yet to reach the triple-digit mark in wins when this nearly pristine beauty emerged from a cigarette pack. Over a century later, the condition remains exactly the same, the corners sharp, the surfaces clean. Add to the list of superlatives flawless color and registration, and precise centering, and the undefeated Mint 9 assessment is plainly justified.
