1914 E224 Texas Tommy Type 1 - Connie Mack

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $2,115

Graded FAIR 20 by SGC. Rare "Texas Tommy" Type 1 of Connie Mack, as manager of the Philadelphia Athletics. Little is known about the product with which Texas Tommys were issued, but it was believed by Jefferson Burdick to have been a candy issue. Texas Tommy Type 1 cards each have the headline "Texas Tommy" printed on the reverse, below which is a very substantial biography (as opposed to Type 2 cards which have blank backs). This card features a very unusual portrait image of Hall of Famer Connie Mack that is unique to this set. Though technically in low grade, the card still displays very well. It also has a particularly clean reverse, which is especially desirable for sample cards from this set. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $2,115
