1911 Western Playground Association PCL - Harry Stewart
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,280
Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC (submitted by REA). This is the only example graded at this level by SGC with none higher. Extremely rare sample card of Harry Stewart from this unusual Pacific Coast League issue. Western Playground cards (2.25 x 3.5 inches) feature stars from the Pacific Coast League. Above the identification of each player is the text "Western Playground Association - PC League." The PCL has always been of great interest to card collectors. The 40-card 1911 Western Playground Association set is one of the most distinctive and also one of the rarest of all PCL or 1910-era issues. We have only ever offered five Western Playground cards in all our years (the first four cards were highlights of an original-owner collection offered in 2012 and 2014). This extremely rare sample card is perfectly clean, front and back, with light, even wear to the corners and a small, almost imperceptible crease in the lower left corner. The "Membership Certificate" reverse is also perfectly clean with bold black print. This is a very attractive example, ideal for the serious PCL or sample-card collector, from one of the rarest of all 1910-era issues. SOLD FOR $2,280
