March 2009 Auction
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Graded PSA 7 NM with perfect, unimprovable centering, the presented T206 Sweet Caporal Johnny Evers "Cubs" variation is 1 of just 7 in its grade with only 4 higher. Compare these numbers to the vast "Unknown Back" population data for his "Chicago" and "Portrait" variations, which have seen 28 and 14 PSA 7's, with 7 and 9 higher, respectively. NM corners join MINT edges around a dusky and somewhat haunting image of Evers. Gaunt and "crab"-like and probably still scolding himself for an imperfect play or at-bat, it almost appears as if Evers has been banished from baseball under the sun, lurking for eternity under a nighttime sky, the illusion of which is further accented by the presence of some tolerable white print near the upper border, which appear to shine like early evening stars.
