You don’t go to the post office at 6 a.m. for just any card 

Yesterday I posted about my 1933 Goudey Jim Bottomley card that arrived in the mail.  There should have been a second card as part of that mail day, but no one was home to sign for it.

So the postman left a note saying so could pick up the item anytime after 6 a.m. the next day.

I was there 15 minutes early.

Behold, perhaps the best looking low grade t206 you may ever see, the newest addition to my collection, a 1909-11 t206 Tris Speaker.

  
One look at this card and you may wonder why it graded a 1.5. The front is drop-dead gorgeous. Fantastic centering and bright colors. Decent corners for a century-old card.

The back is why it graded so low.  But even with the paperloss, the back isn’t that bad and when this thing is in my showcase, no one will be looking at the back.
