Love of the Game Set Builder Auction - Winter, 2023

35. 1909-11 T206 American Beauty 350 No Frame Clark Griffith (HOF - Batting) - PSA VG 3

Many T206 American Beauty cards were cut thin for unknown reasons, this VG example of Clark Griffith in his batting pose included. The colors are pleasing and the image is a well composed one, just centered a bit right. The reverse is a “no frame” American Beauty 350, a desirable back which exhibits a small dent in the upper left border that’s not as visible on the obverse. MINIMUM BID: $250

He was out of the majors in 1908 and returned for a brief foray with the Reds in 1909, where he appeared in a single game. The orange background T206 portrait seen here looks fiery, despite some color shift in the registration, Centering is slightly up and left and which is mirrored on the Sweet Caporal 150 with an overprinted Factory 649 reverse. MINIMUM BID: $250
