1959 Topps #468 “Snider’s Play” Original Card Artwork
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $720
Offered is the actual original artwork (4.75 x 3 inches) used to produce card #468 Duke Snider from the 1959 Topps set. This is a particularly noteworthy and impressive artwork featuring Snider making a spectacular catch against the outfield wall. This original flexichrome artwork is in Near Mint condition with standard production-related remnants on its blank reverse. This is an outstanding original 1959 Topps baseball-card artwork, from the small series of distinctive action cards in the set, with tremendous and very meticulous detail. The original artwork includes additional image area which was cropped out by Topps on the issued card. This original card artwork was auctioned once before by REA. It appeared as lot #468 in REA's Spring 2013 auction (realizing $1,777) and has been consigned directly by the purchaser at that sale. The artwork is accompanied by an example of the issued card. SOLD FOR $720
