Color and more color define this clean and bright T206 of Pirates hurler Deacon Phillippe, who - fun fact - is related to actress Reese Witherspoon's son, named Deacon Phillippe in his honor.  Phillippe the hurler pitched five complete games in the 1903 World Series, winning three and losing two.  He blew his arm out a couple of years later but was an excellent pitcher in his prime. 

The imagery and color on this PSA 5 is dramatic, with a fiery orange-tinged sunset and Forbes Field grass that transitions from bright to ghostly green as it recedes. The famed University of Pittsburgh Cathedral of Learning can be seen poking up in a background homage as well. One of the most beautiful T206's there is, this card has a superb EPDG reverse, centered like the front, a little up and to the left.
