1914 E224 Texas Tommy Type 1 - Earl Moore
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,666
Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Rare Texas Tommy Type 1 sample card featuring pitcher Earl Moore of the Chicago Cubs. Texas Tommys were issued with candy bars of that name by the "Cardinet Candy Co." of Oakland, California. Texas Tommy Type 1 cards each have the headline "Texas Tommy" printed on the reverse, below which is a very substantial biography (as opposed to Type 2 cards, which have blank backs). The card has exceptional image contrast, even corner wear, no creases, and is centered to the top (centering issues are common with this series). It also has a particularly clean reverse, which is especially desirable for a sample card from this unusual and rare set. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $2,666
