Considered one of the most underrated players of all time, Sherry Magee could do it all. Known for his great hitting and fielding abilities, he was the National League batting champ in 1910, with a .331 average, and had a total of five .300-plus seasons. He was also the National League RBI leader in four different seasons, and hit 15 home runs on two different occasions, a very difficult feat in that era. With 2,169 hits, 441 stolen bases, and graceful outfield play, he is now being considered for the Hall of Fame by the Veterans Committee. He toiled in the minors for several years after his MLB career ended, retiring in 1926. Sherry Magee passed away after contracting pneumonia at the age of 44.

From The Experts

This is one of the three big rarities in the T206 baseball set along with the Honus Wagner and Eddie Plank cards. It is also, perhaps, the most famous error card in the entire hobby. Sherry Magee was an excellent major leaguer, finishing his 16-year career with a .291 batting average and 1,176 RBI during the Dead Ball Era. In fact, he led the NL in RBI on four separate occasions and finished among the league leaders in home runs several times, but his solid performance is not what makes this card so desirable. Magee’s name was initially spelled incorrectly as “Magie” and then quickly corrected, with the corrected version printed in much higher abundance than the coveted error. Although it is subject to debate, most hobbyists feel this card is a must if you want to truly complete the T206 set.
