1920 Zeenut PCL Near-Complete Set (129/152)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $8,225

Collection of 129 different (of the 152 in set as checklisted in The Standard Catalog ) 1920 Zeenut cards featuring Pacific Coast League players. Missing only 22 cards for completion (Baldwin, Blue, Brenton, DeVitalis, Gardner, Griggs, Hamilton, Hanicy, Kallio, Kenworthy, Kingdon, Koerner, Kopp, Maisel, Niehoff, Reagan, Ross, Siebold, Spranger, Sutherland, Wares, Wisterzill). The 1920 Zeenut set is comprised of players from eight different teams (Los Angeles, Oakland, Portland, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Seattle, and Vernon). A near-complete set such as this is very rarely seen. This is the first near-set of 1920 Zeenuts we have offered. 55% of the cards range from Vg to Ex (with a few Ex-Mt), and 45% range from Pr to Gd-Vg. Key: Bohne (Pr). As is usually the case with Zeenuts, the coupon at the bottom of each card has been neatly clipped away, as intended, to be redeemed for valuable prizes. Also as is usually the case with Zeenuts, most of the cards (even those in the lowest grades) have a far superior appearance than suggested by their technically accurate modest grades. This "comes with the territory" with Zeenuts. This 1920 Zeenut partial set is part of an extraordinary comprehensive Zeenut collection, the finest we have ever handled. The collection was assembled over a period of many years by an extremely advanced pioneer collector, and has been broken down by year into a number of smaller but still very substantial lots. Total: 129 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++.

SOLD FOR $8,225
