They called Joe McGinnity "Iron Man' long before Tony Stark was a gleam in Stan Lee's eye (actually long before Stan Lee was a gleam in his mother's eye), after he twirled and won both games of a trio of doubleheaders in August 1903. He won 246 major league games in 10 years, earning election to the Hall of Fame in 1946. After that he pitched in the minors until the age of 54, living up to his sobriquet in grand fashion. This SGC 6 example captures him showing the form that won the games, with a vivid red background and snowy white borders front and center. This T206 is sporting a Piedmont 350 Factory 42 reverse.
