1909-1916 PC758 Max Stein Postcard Honus Wagner

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $2,040

Graded EX 5 (MC) by PSA. One of only two examples graded by PSA (at any level). Outstanding high-grade example of Honus Wagner from the rare and highly regarded PC758 Max Stein Postcards set issued from 1909 to 1916. The image on this card is the same hitting pose of Wagner which appears in the E300 Plow's Candy set. Baseball photographer Max Stein's classic photo-finish postcards are among the most revered of all early twentieth-century postcards. Bright and crisp, both front and back, with light wear to the corners and top edge. Part of the next card is showing along the left border, which accounts for the miscut qualifier. The card has never been mailed and has no writing on its traditional postcard reverse. Impressive, unusual, and overlooked Wagner card, and an ideal sample card featuring one of the era's most legendary stars, from one of the unusual and substantial of all 1910-era baseball postcard issues. Dimensions: 3.5 x 5.5 inches. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $2,040
