Description

If one were to construct a “Mount Rushmore of Hockey Cards,” the 1911-12 C55 Imperial Tobacco #38 Georges Vezina would undoubtedly reside among other luminaries such as Gretzky, Howe and Orr. Unlike other noteworthy hockey cards, the Imperial Tobacco cornerstone stands alone as the ultimate pre-war card from the sport’s most important set. Similar to the T206 Honus Wagner release for baseball, the Vezina is unlikely to be dethroned from its preeminence.

 

Graded 92 NM-MT+ 8.5 by SGC. The offered 1911-12 C55 Imperial Tobacco #38 Georges Vezina is one of the most important hockey cards in existence! This standard bearer has been nestled in an advanced collection who selected Huggins & Scott as the auction venue for his praiseworthy artifact. To date, a total of 238 Vezina specimens have been evaluated by PSA and SGC. Of those validated by the major grading services, this benchmark is the only example at its grading tier with only one better! It’s difficult to fathom how this goalkeeping legend has endured the century in such remarkable condition! Razor-sharp corners? Check! Clean edges? Check! Pinpoint centering? Check! Bright surface colors and perfect registration? Check! Clean back? Check! Quite simply, this card has all the attributes for which a collector of the very finest could ask.

 

This card has a reserve. Estimated value ($35,000+).
