1911 E94 George Close Candy Frank Chance "Blome's Chocolates" Overprint

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,410

Graded POOR 10 by SGC. Offered is a "Blome’s Chocolates" E94 George Close Candy overprint featuring Hall of Famer Frank Chance. The overprint on this card is bold and vibrant red, and is a perfect strike that really stands out, which of course is ideal for an E94 overprint example. "Overprinting" is a term commonly used to refer to the rare practice of a company taking cards already printed (in some cases even issued by another manufacturer) and adding advertising, in the form of printing or an ink stamp, to allow the cards to function as its own advertising vehicle at modest cost. The front of the card features a strong image of Hall of Famer Frank Chance set against a bright blue background, with evenly rounded corners, several creases, and centering just a hint to the left. This is a very pleasing E94 overprint sample featuring a key Hall of Famer. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,410
