1921 White's Bakery (Tip Top Bread) Baltimore Orioles SGC-Graded Pair
Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $830
Presented is a pair of cards from the 1921 White's Bakery set, each graded and encapsulated by SGC. This lot features Jimmy Murphy (VG 40) and Lefty Mathews (GOOD 30). Both cards are the sole examples graded by SGC. These extremely rare cards were issued exclusively in the Baltimore area with loaves of Tip Top Bread produced by White's Bakery. The set features players from the pennant-winning Orioles team of the International League (including the first card of Hall of Famer Lefty Grove). These cards measure 3-1/4" by 5-1/2" and are printed on very thin stock, making them easily susceptible to damage. The two cards offered here are particularly clean and attractive representations from this fragile set and have been graded modestly due to wrinkling (probably caused by their method of issue). This is an exceptional opportunity to acquire two of the nineteen different cards currently known to exist from this rare Baltimore regional issue. Total: 2 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $830
