The legacy of immortal right handed twirler Mordecai “Three Fingered” Brown cannot be over emphasized, by any means. One of the dead-ball eras legendary Hall of Famers, Brown achieved his iconic nickname when as a young farm boy he accidently stuck his hand in a corn shredder, severely cutting his index finger and paralyzing his pinky finger. Fortunately for Brown, his deformed hand eventually seemed to be the primary reason for the movement on his pitches, leading him to 239 career wins and a spectacular 2.06 lifetime E.R.A. that ranks as the 3rd best lifetime figure behind Walsh and Joss (and surprisingly better than Walter Johnson and Christy Mathewson!). He was as good if not better than all “dead-ball” era pitchers, explaining why advanced enthusiasts scramble to obtain his rarest cardboard relics. With that in mind, presented here just happens to be one of Brown’s most significant cardboard relics, his highly sort after T206 portrait example in an astonishing SGC 7 holder.Considering that over a century has elapsed since this card was initially pulled from a Sweet Caporal Cigarette pack, the near mint assessment is an astonishing accomplishment, and we are sure that its new owner will be equally as proud as the previous caretakers of this tobacco cardboard marvel!
