Offered is one of the very finest T206 Chief Benders on the planet. Recently graded 8.5 NM/MT+ by PSA, this incredible Piedmont-backed Bender boasts one of the finest renditions of Carl Horner's classic photograph of the Hall of Fame Philly hurler we've ever seen applied to cardboard. With a pristinely registered image set against a spotless and apropos green background of rich olive shades, no other issue comes remotely close to challenging the visual appeal of this iconic T206. The centering on both surfaces appears near perfect, and only the edges and corners display at the opined grading tier of 8.5 NM/MT+. Importantly, this is the only example in its 8.5 class from any of the T206 population reports from PSA. A glittering jewel of a prominent card bordering on MINT.
