High grade T206 tobacco cards just may be the most desirable cardboard collectible in the hobby. Whether a Hall of Fame subject or common player, related enthusiasts are actively compiling pinnacle graded cards for their esteemed PSA registered sets. One of those premier subjects is offered here in a spectacular PSA 8 holder, hard hitting multi-positioned player Frank LaPorte. Only a single other Piedmont card is listed in the PSA “Piedmont” category and not a single copy has been graded higher for ALL advertisement backs! Furthermore, attaining any PSA 8 T206 card is tough enough, let alone a Hall of Famer with only 1.9% of the total 127,000+ PSA encapsulated examples achieving this lofty assessment! LaPorte recorded fine seasons for several different ball clubs including his final two years with the Federal League. His breathtaking representation on this T206 marvel includes a near pristine image of the New York American affixed to a flawless solid green setting. Virtually perfect centering, bright white borders, a sterling bold blue Piedmont back and an extremely sharp perimeter all contribute to one of the finest LaPorte T206’s in the hobby!
