(Marietta, Georgia) October 6, 2021 — A previously unreported T206 Lenox Brown “both hands showing” card of Hall of Fame player Hughie Jennings is attracting strong bidding in a Memory Lane auction
(https://memorylaneinc.com/site/bids/bidplace?itemid=61841) that ends this Saturday, October 9, 2021.
It was recently discovered by Rob Oberth of RoundTable Trading (www.RoundTableTrading.com) among a fresh collection of T206 cards brought to his store in Marietta, Georgia.
Now certified PSA Authentic, online bidding for the card in the Memory Lane auction already is over $6,600. No other example is listed in either the PSA or SCG population reports.
“As I began examining the collection it just jumped right out at me and seemed to have an interesting look. Given the rarity of such a unique card to even exist, I wasn’t entirely sure it was real,” recalled Oberth who oversees the exclusive dealer-only Facebook group, Card Dealers Helping Card Dealers (www.facebook.com/groups/227807271331465).
He posted the card for the Facebook group members to view and asked for opinions. One of the responses came from Daniel Wulkan of Memory Lane who said, “This is a first of its kind. Rarely do we see a card of this nature enter the market.”
The auction lot (#229) description states: “…this extraordinary T206 Brown Lenox Hughie Jennings ‘Both Hands Showing’ PSA ‘Authentic’ offering resides as one of the rarest tobacco cards on the planet.”
