While the Louis Lowdermilk card receives a lot of attention as a key rarity in the underrated T207 set, possibly the most difficult card is that of Boston's Irving Lewis.  The card is a perfect storm of rarity within the issue, being one of just four image variations in the set, with a tough back, perhaps the rarest of the 50 available Cycle/Broadleaf-backed cards in the set.  The "easier" of the two variations (the other does not picture the Braves emblem on Lewis' sleeve), the card has been graded VG 3 by Beckett, who unfortunately erroneously labeled the player as the Red Sox' Duffy Lewis.  The VG 3 grade is accurate, however, some slight cracking to the gloss responsible for the grade.  A light centering issue is also present, though the eye appeal of the card is tremendous, particularly given its extreme rarity.
