1916 D303 Mothers' Bread Hap Felsch - Black Sox!

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,659

Graded VG 40 by SGC. Extremely rare bakery card of infamous “Black Sox” member Hap Felsch from the 1916 D303 Mothers' Bread set. All Mothers' Bread cards are rare, but an example of “Black Sox” member Hap Felsch is all the more noteworthy and desirable. This is also a particularly interesting card in that, although identified as Hap Felsch, the image on the card is actually that of Ray Demmitt. Produced by the General Baking Co. of New Orleans, the Mothers' Bread series was regionally issued only in the Louisiana area. Mothers' Bread cards are so rare they are “off the radar” of most collectors. The Standard Catalog checklist for this set is incomplete and continues to be a work in progress. This is an exceptionally attractive card with bright, crisp colors, outstanding surface gloss, even wear on the corners, and centered to the left. The reverse has a boldly printed advertisement. This is an extremely sharp looking, very striking and clean "Black Sox" sample card from this rare prewar food issue. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,659
