1911 "Big Eater" Sacramento Solons PCL - Thornton - Highest Graded!
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,200
Graded VG 40 by SGC. The only example graded at this level with none higher! 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, outstanding centering, even wear to the corners, and a few unobtrusive wrinkles, most noticeable from the reverse. A superb sample card from one of the rarest of all PCL issues. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,200
