Default Finally got a T206 Hugh Duffy that I always wanted

I am very happy! For some reason this card has always stood out to me as a great piece of baseball card art.

Could anyone add please any thoughts (opinions) on the card?

My thoughts...

You now need to find and buy a matching sweater, along with an old school pipe. Too fitting.

Great card, beautiful image.

Great card! Lots of "movement" in that pose.

If you seriously want a replica sweater from that era, Mitchell and Ness in Philadelphia makes them. I have a replica 1908 Cubs sweater that I bought from them 20 years ago.

I think he's hitting infield practice(or outfield)...he just threw the ball up with one hand and now hes reaching for the bat with that hand to smack a grounder to the shortstop or hit a fly ball to the leftfielder

Agreed. I was thinking the same thing.

That is one nice T206. Great image, rich color and the right kind of wear.

Which back did your Duffy come with? He was an "old hand" by 1909.
