    Description

    1909-11 T206 Uzit Sam Crawford (With Bat) PSA NM-MT 8 - One of the Finest Uzit T206s Known.




    A devastating combination of power and speed elevated "Wahoo Sam" to the top of the career charts for triples with a total of 309, fourteen better than his closest rival and Hall of Fame teammate Ty Cobb. Much like Gehrig's experience with Ruth, Crawford often found himself in the shadow of the more famous Tiger. Although PSA has rated hundreds of T206 Crawford "With Bat" cards, those at the upper end of the grading scale present a very thin supply. Just over a handful have earned a NM-MT label and just one - this one - has survived the last century virtually uncirculated with one of the rarest T206 tobacco brands. Such an incredible combination of brand rarity and condition is a sign there just might be a higher power who is a T206 fan looking out for the hobby.

    Graded PSA NM-MT 8. Accounting for every available brand, there are over 550 submissions noted on the PSA census. But this card displays an extremely rare "Uzit Cigarettes" ad with a factory 30 caption. Currently, there are only three confirmed with "Uzit" backs! This is the highest graded example of the coveted trio. Looking to add an immensely prized entry to your T206 collection we feel this card earns someone some bragging rights.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $100,000 - up.
