1910 J. H. Dockman Son "All Star Base-Ball" Connie Mack
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $720
Presented is a very rarely seen example of Hall of Fame manager Connie Mack from the "All Star Base-Ball" series. In 1910 J. H. Dockman & Son of Baltimore issued a striking and extraordinarily rare package-design set, with two cards featured on each "All Star Base-Ball Package - Candy and Gift" (one on the front, and one on the back). Dockman used generic illustrations for their design, rather than actual likenesses, of ballplayers. The cards were intended to be cut from the boxes and collected by youngsters. (For those interested in viewing a complete uncut box, one was offered in REA's 2011 auction as lot #195.) Encapsulated as "Authentic" by SGC (submitted by REA), the offered example of Mack presents extremely well, but would technically grade Good due to light creasing at the top of the card. The image is unaffected and boldly printed. Bright and clean, this is a beautiful example! It is rare to find even a common player sample card from this issue, let alone a major Hall of Famer like Connie Mack. "All Star Base-Ball" has always been among the most elusive of all 1910-era baseball-card issues. This is a very attractive example of one of the rarest of all early baseball package-design cards as well as one of Connie Mack's rarest cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $720
