Attractive #1 card from the rare Cuban-issued Diaz Cigarettes set, featuring perhaps the greatest American pitcher of all-time, Walter Johnson.  Graded GOOD 30 by SGC, it is not the card's grade that is important but its extreme rarity - aside from this (which we initially sold in the spring of 2015, we can only find one other example of a Diaz Walter Johnson having been publicly sold, a PSA 1 example that sold at auction in recent years.  In fact, just two graded examples are known to exist, this one being the higher of the two.

An incredibly rare and highly coveted card, from one of the hobby's most rare tobacco issues and one of the most rare of all the Cuban issues, easily the key card in the set.
