PLEASE NOTE THE NOTATION OF THE MARK ON THE FRONT OF THIS CARD.  Stunning example of the Eddie Plank card from the E95 Philadelphia Caramel issue, a familiar portrait derived from the Horner photo that is also used on several of Plank's other cards, most notably his incredibly rare T206.  The green background lends a rich, colorful feel to the card, while more color and depth is applied to Plank's face as well.  Well-centered and clean, the corner wear just a tad heavy for a higher-grade holder, though we have seen VG/EX cards with similar wear.  A few stray areas of foxing are evident on the front, with some very light staining on the reverse, perhaps from scrapbook removal.  An outstanding card, but one with a mark on the surface so obvious that not only did we miss it in our initial description, but PSA missed it when grading the card.  On Plank's left breast, the letter "A" has been drawn in, as if it was intended to be part of his uniform.  Our consignor was kind enough to point it out to us before the auction went live, so we have amended our description to reflect it.
