Graded 30 GD 2 by SGC. Offered is an example of what is indisputably one of the most famous and valuable "error" cards in our hobby. At the beginning of T206's print run, a few cards from the "Piedmont 150" series slipped out with Phillie outfielder Sherry Magee's name misspelled as "Magie." This mistake was quickly discovered and corrected, and the few early, undetected copies have become today's profound rarities. This is, of course, one of the "Big Three" in T206, and a card that is absent from many high-profile tobacco card collections. This copy has corner wear, light creases, and a missing speck near its subject’s left eye, but its central image is unmistakable. The card's distinctive "error" caption component is crisply printed and the Piedmont back advertisement is fully legible. This ever-elusive piece, presented here in affordable grade, appears on the wantlist of almost every T206 collector and is always considered a defining mark of accomplishment for its owner. This example displays technically ascribed Good condition, but retains a captivating presence.
