1911-1914 D304 Brunners Bread Frank Chance

Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $1,763

Graded EX 5 by PSA. One of just two examples graded at this level, with only one graded higher. Very attractive example of this classic bakery card of Hall of Famer Frank Chance from the Chicago Cubs. This is one of Frank Chance’s rarest and most striking cards. Similar in design to tobacco and candy cards of the era, Brunners measure slightly larger than T206s, at 1.75 x 2.5 inches, and are considerably rarer than most 1910-era "E" and "T" card issues. The fronts feature very attractive full-color illustrations, each of which is unique to this issue. These bakery cards were issued in Buffalo and come with several different styles of advertising on the reverse. This sample features the Brunners Butter-Krust brand bread ad on the back. Bright and crisp, both front and back, with brilliant colors, four square corners displaying light, even wear, a tiny surface flake in the extreme lower left corner, and a tiny stain on the lower right border and top border. Centered to the left on the back (approximately 25/75 L/R). Due to the noted small technical flaws, we grade this card a little harsher than PSA (Vg-Ex). This is an extremely attractive mid-grade example of one of Chance's most striking cards from this rare prewar food issue. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $1,763
