T206 Charles Bender with trees!
Not much to say about this one except it gives me 2 of the 3 Bender T206 cards and it's not long for this case.
My knowledge of the T206 set is limited but I do know it's called the 'Monster' and it's the most iconic baseball card set in history. Lot's of collectors have insights into the variations, back varieties and such but I'm not sure anyone knows much about the artists responsible for these beauties.
Looking at my new card above with the trees in the background and my other one (below) without the trees I can take a guess that two different artists used the same photo as a model.
The third T206 Charles Bender is a beauty as well. Here is an image of it from the net:
I've exhausted my hobby budget for the month (year? LOL) but there are a couple of these on eBay right now that my my left index finger itching to click the BIN button. Lord give me strength!
