Lot # 881 (881 of 1911)   « Previous Lot | Next Lot »

1946-1947 Propagandas Montiel SGC-Graded Hall of Fame Collection (6) Including Ruth and Gehrig

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,560

Collection of six key cards from the 1946-1947 Propagandas Montiel issue, each professionally graded and encapsulated by SGC. This fascinating Cuban set was issued with packages of Propagandas Montiel caramel. The set includes Major League ballplayers (both current and old-timers), Florida International League players (Minor League), a handful of Cuban League players, a few wrestlers, as well as a selection of boxers past and present. There are few sets from any era which have more stars than this unusual late 1940s issue. This lot consists of the following: #41 Ruth (VG 40), 42 Cobb (POOR 10), 55 Feller (Authentic, trimmed), 57 Gehrig (GOOD 30), 73 Hubbell (FAIR 20), and 79 Mathewson (GOOD 30). These cards were meant to be glued into an album, and because of this, cards from this set are rarely found in better than Vg condition. Printed on thin stock, these cards are also naturally susceptible to wrinkling and heavy creasing. The cards in the offered collection all present very well despite their modest assigned grades. A superb opportunity to acquire six key cards from this unusual Cuban card issue. Total: 6 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,560
