Rare Albino Background T206 Eddie Plank Heads to Auction

Albino T206 Eddie Plank card

If you’re a dedicated collector of vintage baseball cards, you’re probably familiar with the T206 set.   It’s the home of the ‘holy grail’ Honus Wagner, of course.  It’s also where you’ll find numerous errors, variations and oddities that are constantly under scrutiny.  Now comes an anomaly that is both bizarre and mesmerizing:  a T206 Eddie Plank that is not only devoid of background and facial color, but also one of only five that carry the Piedmont 150 Subjects advertising back.  The ‘albino Plank’ has been consigned to the upcoming Goodwin & Company auction with a starting bid of $40,000.  Read full story on Sports Collectors Daily here.
