1914 E224 Texas Tommy Type 2 - Steve Yerkes
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,851
Graded EX 60 by SGC. Incredibly rare Texas Tommy Type 2 of Steve Yerkes, of the "Red Sox." It is almost impossible to find even a sample card from this issue. An example from Texas Tommy Type 2 is missing from almost every advanced sample-card collection. During the past forty years, we have had literally only a handful of cards from this set. Only fifteen different Type 2 Texas Tommys are known. Type 1 cards have printing, including advertising, on their reverses. Type 2 cards are slightly smaller (1.875 x 3 inches), are printed on far superior stock, with a glossy photographic finish (as opposed to Type 1 cards which are lower-quality "flat" printing), and have blank backs. The card is in solid EX condition and, as can easily be seen, has an even more impressive appearance. Bright, perfectly clean and crisp, with just a hint of corner wear. Texas Tommys were issued with candy bars of that name by a candy company named "Cardinet Candy Co." of Oakland, California. This is an extremely attractive and extremely highly graded sample card from this rare "E" card set, of a very well known player, and featuring an absolutely stunning and flawless image. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $3,851
