1933 Uncle Jacks Candy Frank Frisch - PSA EX 5

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $711

Graded EX 5 by PSA. One of only two examples graded at this level with none graded higher. This is a pack-fresh gem with a NM-MT appearance. Extremely rare Uncle Jacks Candy card of Hall of Famer Frank Frisch. Uncle Jacks are one of the rarer and lesser-known candy issues of the early 1930s. Like Goudey and National Chicle, Uncle Jacks was based in New England. The company issued only one thirty-card set. Each blank-backed card in the set was issued in red or blue duotone. Cards were sold in a see-through wax-paper pack with one card, a slab of gum, and a coupon per pack. The coupon featured advertising for Uncle Jacks and information about a contest to attend the 1933 World Series. The card pictures Frisch in a "swing-thru" batting pose. This extremely high-grade example for this issue appears to literally have just been pulled from a pack (and very likely was from a find of unopened packs that surfaced decades ago), with four sharp corners, a crisp, clean image, and centered just a hint to the bottom right. The reverse shows evidence of an outline from where the coupon and gum were lying on the card in its original pack, and this is all that keeps this card from a grade of PSA NM-MT 8. This is an outstanding high-grade Hall of Famer sample card from this very rare and unusual 1930s set. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $711
