1910 Plow Boy Tobacco Ginger Beaumont SGC EX 60 - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,304

Graded EX 60 by SGC. This is the only example of Beaumont graded at this level with none higher. Outstanding example of Ginger Beaumont from this unusual sepia-toned 1910 cabinet-card issue which features Cubs and White Sox players, issued by the Spaulding & Merrick Tobacco Company to promote its Plow Boy Tobacco brand. The rarity of the set is related to the fact that they were issued only in the Chicago area. Plow Boy Tobacco cards measure 5-3/4 x 8 inches. They are easily one of the rarest of all twentieth-century tobacco issues, and of additional note, these cards show players in poses that are unique to this set. This is an exceptional example, clean and crisp both front and back, with a striking image, excellent centering, and four strong corners displaying only tiny touches of wear. The reverse is boldly printed with a one-inch wide strip of discoloration across the bottom edge (likely the result of the way in which this card was stored or displayed at some point in time). EX 60 is the highest grade ever awarded to a Plow Boy cabinet (of any subject) by SGC, and only eight examples have been graded at this level. This exceptionally strong Plow Boy Tobacco example would make a superb addition to any prewar or sample-card collection. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,304
