1911 Stevens Firearms Connie Mack
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $830
Extremely rare sample card of Connie Mack from the 1911 Stevens Firearms issue. Capitalizing on the Philadelphia Athletics' American League Pennant in 1911 (and their eventual defeat of the New York Giants in the World Series), Stevens Firearms issued a series of ink blotters featuring members of the team promoting Stevens' product line of rifles and shotguns. Measuring 6-3/16 by 3-7/16 inches, this card features a black-and-white portrait of the team's manager, Hall of Famer Connie Mack, alongside the "Pennant Winners" headline and company advertising, as well as a box where retailers could stamp their specific address and information, underneath. Examples from this series are extremely rare. This is the ONLY example (of any subject) ever graded by PSA. SGC has four examples (including one Mack graded SGC FAIR 20) listed on its Population Report. Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA, the offered example is crisp and clean with bold black printing on front and light, even wear to the corners. There is a small bend in the lower left corner and light toning along the bottom border. The blank reverse is entirely clean. This is an exceptional example of Connie Mack that would be a worthy addition to any advanced Philadelphia Athletics, Hall of Fame, or type-card collection. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $830
