1934-1936 Diamond Matchbook Silver Border PSA-Graded Collection (30)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $240

Presented is an outstanding collection of thirty different 1934-1936 Diamond Matchbook Silver Borders, each professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA, highlighted by Hall of Famers Rick Ferrell and Charlie Gehringer. These are the "unsung heroes" of 1930s collecting! Unusual, substantial, scarce, and (perhaps because they are not traditional cards) somewhat overlooked by most collectors. Issued by the Diamond Matchbook Company during the 1930s, the matchbooks come in blue, green, orange, and red, and feature small player portraits and biographical information on the front. PSA Grading Composite: EX 5 (17 cards): Allen, DeSautel, Durham, Ferrell (HOF), Fonseca, Gaston, Gehringer (HOF), Hale, Knickerbocker, Mahaffey, Majeski, Pytlak, Quigley, Rommel, Stephenson, Walker, and White. VG-EX+ 4.5 (3 cards): Frankhouse, Galatzer, and McNair. VG-EX 4 (6 cards): Cramer, Harder, Myatt, Schulmerich, Smith, and Werber. VG 3 (4 cards): Berry, Marrow, Stewart, and Stripp. This is a very attractive collection of these scarce 1930s matchbook covers, which represent perhaps the most outstanding value of all 1930s issues. Total: 30 matchbook covers. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $240
