The 1911 T206 Fred Payne with the DOUBLE NAME ERROR and Piedmont 350-460 back, graded SGC 1.5, is a remarkable and highly intriguing piece for vintage baseball card collectors. Part of the iconic T206 series, known among collectors as “The Monster” due to its size and the numerous variations it includes, this card features Fred Payne, a player from the early 20th century Major League Baseball. The T206 set, produced from 1909 to 1911, is famous for its artistic portraits and is a cornerstone of vintage baseball card collecting.
The unique DOUBLE NAME ERROR on this card is a significant aspect that sets it apart. Printing errors like these were not uncommon in the early days of baseball card production but finding them today adds a level of rarity and desirability among collectors. The Piedmont 350-460 brand back is one of the various tobacco brands that sponsored the T206 set and is a sought-after variation by collectors.
Despite its lower grade of SGC 1.5, indicating fair condition with some noticeable imperfections, the card’s historical value and the rarity of the double name error make it a prized piece. Such cards are valued not just for their physical condition but for their historical significance and the unique stories they tell about the early days of baseball card production.
