1914 E224 Texas Tommy (Type 1) Jimmy Austin
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $960
Graded FAIR 20 by SGC. Rare Texas Tommy Type 1 sample card featuring Jimmy Austin of the St. Louis Browns. Texas Tommys were issued with candy bars of that name by the "Cardinet Candy Co." of Oakland, California. Texas Tommy Type 1 cards each have the headline "Texas Tommy" printed on the reverse, below which is a very substantial biography (as opposed to Type 2 cards, which have blank backs). The card has a flawless central image, with creasing in each of the four corners. The reverse is fully intact, with a few small stains and two small letters written in pencil. Though technically modest in grade, the card still displays beautifully and remains a desirable sample card from this unusual and rare set. Reserve $300. Estimate $500++. SOLD FOR $960
