Magee played 16 seasons for the Philadelphia Phillies (1904-1914) the Boston Braves (1915- 1917) and the Cincinnati Reds (1917-1919). In 1910, Sherry led the National League in runs (110), batting average (.331) and RBI (123) falling six hits (172) shy of winning the Triple Crown. He also led the league in RBI in 1907, 1914 and 1918. Magee was a member of the 1919 Cincinnati Red World Series championship team, batting .550 as a pinch-hitter in postseason play.

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.
