Graded PSA 7 NM, this is an extremely high-end example of Rube Waddell's T206 "Portrait" variation with a Sweet Caporal ad back. The only example of its kind in PSA's Sweet Caporal specific pop report, the offered specimen joins just 8 competitors in the NM tier from the "Unknown Back" database. Significantly above-grade NM/MT to NM/MT+ corners join NM edges around a striking image of the St. Louis legend that microscopically favors the west. A small pin prick of print above Rube's left eye appears to be the primary catalyst for the conservative grade from the increasingly strict graders at PSA.
