Hughie Jennings was not only a great manager but a super-skilled batter and infielder as well. Honus Wagner said he was incomparable as a shortstop. As a batter, he holds the record for most RBI (121) in a season without hitting a home run, the same season he batted .401. Offered here is one of the finest examples of Hughie's T206 "Both Hands Showing" variation not already protected in private collections. Admirably centered with what appears to be a solid MINT perimeter at all points but the top left corner. Graded SGC 86 NM+ 7.5 with only 1 higher at SGC and just 6 superiors at PSA.
