1911 Western Playground Association PCL - Walt Carlisle

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $600

Extremely rare sample card from this unusual Pacific Coast League issue. Western Playground cards (2.25 x 3.5 inches) feature stars from the Pacific Coast League. Above the identification of each player reads "Western Playground Association - PC League." The PCL has always been of great interest to card collectors. The 40-card 1911 Western Playground Association set is one of the most distinctive and also one of rarest of all PCL or 1910-era issues. In all our years, we have previously offered only five sample cards from this elusive set. This extremely rare sample card is encapsulated as Authentic by SGC due to trimming around the perimeter, but otherwise presents as Vg-Ex, with a strong image and even wear at the corners. The "Membership Certificate" reverse is also perfectly clean with bold black print. This is a very attractive and relatively affordable example, ideal for the serious PCL or sample-card collector, from one of the rarest of all 1910-era issues.  Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $600
