If you are seeking some of the toughest T206 advertisement back specimens, then this obscure “Red Hindu” PSA 4 Doc Crandall offering is the card for you! Hobby experts easily concur that any “Red Hindu” example qualifies as the 7th rarest T206 ad backs. Regarding this PSA 4 Doc Crandall, PSA’s “pop” chart indicates only a single other specimen at this plateau with NONE graded higher (that count includes BOTH the more common “Brown” Hindu vs. the scarcer “Red” Hindu subjects since PSA does not distinguish between the two). Crandall was one of the first consistent relief pitchers in baseball history, receiving his “Doc” nickname because he was considered a physician of pitching emergencies! Fortunately, this eye pleasing offering requires no assistance for its superb aesthetics, with Crandall’s classic portrait pose emanating vivid facial and uniform hues, ably assisted by a near-flawless bright red background. The well-centered image reflects no obtrusive blemishes, the corners depict an eye pleasing even wear, and the significant reverse side red “HINDU” advertisement is extremely bold. Red Hindu T206 subjects are certainly not in abundance, justifying why this pinnacle graded Crandall scarcity should be included on any sophisticated collector’s want list!
