1933 Uncle Jack's Candy Hack Wilson PSA EX+ 5.5 - 1 of 1 - Highest Graded!
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $840
Graded EX+ 5.5 by PSA. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! Extremely rare Uncle Jacks Candy card of Chicago Cubs Hall of Famer Hack Wilson. Uncle Jack's is one of the rarer and lesser-known candy issues of the early 1930s. Like Goudey and National Chicle, Uncle Jack's was based in New England. The company issued only one thirty-card set. Each blank-backed card in the set was issued in red or blue duotone. Cards were sold in a see-through wax-paper pack with one card, a slab of gum, and a coupon per pack. The coupon featured advertising for Uncle Jack's and information about a contest to attend the 1933 World Series. The card pictures Wilson in a throwing pose. This example is well centered, with a flawless image and light wear to the corners, which is all that keeps it from grading higher. Clean reverse. This is an outstanding high-grade Hall of Famer sample card from this very rare and unusual 1930s set. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $840
