Graded FR 1.5 by SGC. The career of George Daniel "Buck" Weaver was just beginning to take shape when this extraordinary piece was produced, and the red-backed "Obak" tobacco insert remains one of the hobby's favorite remembrances of the eventual "Black Sox" star. With a renown compounded by the perpetual controversy surrounding its subject – if Weaver helped to "fix" the 1919 Series, why did he accept no money ... and bat .324 in the contest? – this high-demand piece is a noted "key card" in the challenging T212 issue. The offered collectible delivers a visually engaging depiction of Weaver that's just glancingly disrupted by horizontal and vertical creases. Those discrepancies – and peripheral, light stains and corner wear – do not diminish the item's magnetic character of presentation. Here is the potential for a very meaningful addition to a serious vintage collection, in Fair condition.
1911 T212-3 Obak "Black Sox" Buck Weaver – SGC FR 1.5
