Description

A gorgeous illustration of the “The Big Train", presented is 1914 T213-2 Coupon Cigarettes Walter Johnson. Graded a "20" by SGC, this "Louisiana" issue is the only pose of this charter Hall of Fame member found in the 1914 "type 2" edition and appears much nicer than the assigned grade. Released only in select Louisiana parishes, very few examples survived either their initial contact or the hostile elements. Many times scarcer than the nationally released T206 set from which this series borrowed its images, only (12) T213-2 Johnson examples have been graded by SGC, none of which are higher than a “60”. This attractive card is accentuated by a dark blue background, clean back, and is only degraded by a handful of unobtrusive spider creases along the edges and body, quite typical for the issue. For the Hall of Fame type card collector, one needs to look no further than this scarcity.
