1922-1923 PB4 Kolb's Mothers' Bread Near-Complete Set (28/32 plus 17 duplicates)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $830

1922-1923 PB4 Kolb's Mothers' Bread near-complete set (28 of 32 plus seventeen duplicates for a total of 45), missing only four pins for completion (Abbott, Bates, Lynn, Smallwood). Scarce pin set featuring members of the Reading Baseball Club of the International League. This set is especially interesting as it includes Hall of Famer Chief Bender as Manager. The set also includes many others who played in the majors. Forty-one of the forty-five pins have the original back papers intact. One is missing the pin. Diameter: each 7/8 inches. Great-looking near set of this fascinating, high-quality, unusual, and extremely scarce minor league pinback issue from the early 1920s. The collection grades Ex overall (with a few slightly better and a couple slightly lesser). Total: 45 pins. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $830
