1910 World Champion Philadelphia Athletics Advertising Mirror

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,380.00

1910 Philadelphia Athletics celluloid pocket mirror features portrait photos of the 1910 World Champion Philadelphia Athletics in tiny individual ovals, surrounding an advertisement in the center for the Equitable Loan Society of Philadelphia, a Philadelphia pawn shop. The 17 players depicted include Collins (HOF), Baker (HOF), Bender (HOF), Plank (HOF), Murphy, Lord, Krause, Livingstone, Morgan, Davis, Houser, Lapp, Coombs, Thomas, Oldring, and Barry, plus the team's manager, Connie Mack (HOF). This pocket mirror was distributed as an advertising give away by the Equitable Loan Society, and measures 2-3/16 inches in diameter. A similarly designed pocket mirror is known for the 1910 National League Champion Pirates. The A's team is by far the rarer of the two. An outstanding high-grade example of one of the most classic of all baseball celluloids. Near Mint. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,380.00
