This is an absolutely phenomenal PSA MINT 9 example of Hall-of-Fame pitcher Rube Waddell's "Throwing" variety T206 card. One of two cards within the landmark T206 set to feature Waddell, this copy is highly sought after because of its stunning artwork.
Hall-of-Famer Rube Waddell enjoyed a tremendous 13-year career. He was a dominant fastball pitcher who led the American League in strikeouts for six consecutive seasons. He won the American League pitching Triple Crown in 1905, and was a key member of the pennant winning Philadelphia A's that same year.
The offered card is simply magnificent. It features perfect centering, unblemished cream-white borders, outstanding corner quality, flawless surface quality, and a crystal-clear image of Waddell. But most amazing is the beautiful multi-colored artwork. It looks like this card was literally hand painted yesterday, that's how vibrant the colors are. This unbelievable gem is one of just two copies graded MINT 9 by PSA, with none higher.
