1911 D359 Rochester Baking Harry Krause - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,440

Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. The only example graded at this level with none higher! Very attractive sample card of Harry Krause from the 1911 D359 Rochester Baking series. D359s are among the rarest of all 1910-era issues. Produced to commemorate the Athletics’ 1910 Championship season, the set features exclusively Athletics, including manager Connie Mack. Four different companies (Rochester Baking, Williams Baking, Cullivan’s Fireside Tobacco, and blank-backed versions catalogued as E104-1 Nadja) issued the 18-card Philadelphia Athletics set in 1911. The cards measure 1-1/2 x 2-5/8 inches, which is the standard size for tobacco and candy issues, but are considerably rarer than most 1910-era “E” and “T” card issues. This sample is bright and clean, with a striking red background, even wear to the corners, and near-perfect centering. Ideally, the important advertising reverse is entirely clean. This is an extremely attractive (and for this issue very high grade) sample card from this rare bakery-card set. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $1,440
