You have to wonder if Ed Abbaticchio, the first Italian-American to play in the major leagues and pro football, knew someone at the American Lithographic Company, as his two T206 cards are both stunners visually.  This one, dubbed as the Brown Sleeves card, features a sunset background that plays off the green grass foreground beautifully. The SGC 2 grade is accurate, as the corner crease and paper loss on the front are in play but this is a sharp looking card no matter. The Sweet Caporal 150 Factory 30 reverse shows off the still-white 3-D looking back to great effect.
