An absolutely breathtaking example of Hall-of-Famer Willie Keeler's T206 "With Bat" variety card. This is one of two cards featuring Keeler within the classic T206 set.
Keeler had an outstanding 19-year career (1892 - 1910). He amassed a total of 2932 hits, leading the league three times, and finished twelfth all-time with a .341 batting average. He hit over .300 16 different times within 19 seasons, and had eight consecutive seasons with 200 or more hits.
The offered example is simply amazing. The centering is perfect - both ways, the ivory-white borders are completely unblemished, and all four corners are pinpoint sharp. The finely detailed image of Keeler in uniform, choking up on his bat, is crystal-clear. And most impressive of all is the stunning multi-colored artwork featured on this card. Royal blue, violet, lavender, and forest green coloration provide an exquisite background against Keeler's image. A world class card in every respect, this is a unique opportunity to acquire the best-of-the-best.
