The T206 Piedmont Factory 42 Barney Pelty card, graded PSA 1, with the Piedmont 350-460 Factory 42 back, is a notable and rare item for collectors of vintage baseball cards. Part of the esteemed T206 series, produced from 1909 to 1911, this card features Barney Pelty, a major league pitcher known for his skill during the early 20th century. The T206 series, often referred to as “The Monster” due to its size and complexity, is celebrated for its artistic value and historical significance.
The rarity of this card is significantly enhanced by the Piedmont Factory 42 back. In the T206 series, the backs of the cards featured advertisements from various tobacco companies, with Piedmont being one of the prominent sponsors. The Factory 42 designation refers to a specific printing facility and is considered more uncommon among the various Piedmont backs, thus making it a “Tough Back” and highly sought after by collectors.
Despite the lower grade of PSA 1, indicating significant wear but still intact, the historical significance and rarity of the Factory 42 back make this Barney Pelty card a valuable item. Collectors often value such cards for their connection to the history of baseball and the early era of baseball card production, beyond just their physical condition.
