1911 "Big Eater" Sacramento Solons PCL - Mahoney

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,440

Graded GOOD+ 35 by SGC (submitted by REA). Extremely rare sample card (2-1/8 x 4 inches) from this unusual Pacific Coast League issue. "Big Eaters" feature full-length poses of members of the Sacramento Solons. Beneath the identification of each player and his team is the endorsement "He Eats 'Big Eater'." It is believed that "Big Eater" was a brand of candy. This is a very attractive example, with a crisp image, even wear to the corners, a few unobtrusive wrinkles, and centering slightly to the bottom. A superb sample card from one of the rarest of all PCL issues.  Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $1,440
