Offered is a sharp and near perfectly centered example of Sam Crawford's T206 "Throwing" variation. Precisely NM corners join marginally superior NM+ edges around a well-preserved image of "Wahoo Sam," who holds the career record for both triples (309) and inside-the-park home runs (51). Playing at a time when many ballfields had no outfield walls, these records speak not only to Crawford's offensive productivity, but, more significantly, to his sheer strength. According to Fielder Jones, "no one could hit them quite as hard."
