1912 E300 Plow's Candy Solly Hoffman

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,200

Graded GOOD 30 by SGC (submitted by REA). Superb sample card of Solly Hoffman (Chicago Cubs) from the extremely elusive 1912 E300 Plow's Candy issue. These unusual sepia toned, large format (3 x 4 inches) cards were not even known to exist until the 1960s, and this candy card issue is among the rarest of the era. The offered example presents with a crisp image, strong corners, and near-perfect centering. A crease along the right border, as well as staining and wrinkling on the blank reverse, are responsible for the assigned grade. Despite the modest grade, this remains an outstanding example of this substantial and significant rarity, worthy of any advanced sample or prewar-card collection.  Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $1,200
