32. 1915 Cracker Jack #39 Chick Gandil - PSA EX-MT 6

34. 1922 Eastern Exhibit Supply Ty Cobb (HOF) - PSA VG-EX 4

Extremely Eastern Exhibit Supply card of Ty Cobb, nearing the end of his legendary career. As with many Exhibits, the large size of the card provides a level of detail that “regular” sized cards do not, which is part of the appeal of the issue. In this case, the card has been conservatively graded VG-EX 4 by PSA, with very light corner touches and a clean surface. Some light staining is visible on the reverse, reducing the technical grade of what otherwise appears to be an EX-MT card. attractive MINIMUM BID: $500

Beautiful, well-centered and clean card of Chick Gandil, first baseman of the Chicago White Sox, banned from baseball for his involvement with the Black Sox scandal. Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA, the card does exhibit mild examples of the caramel staining ubiquitous with Cracker Jacks, but the eye appeal is strong regardless, an outstanding specimen.


33. 1916 M101-5 Sporting News (Blank Back) Honus Wagner (HOF) - PSA VG-EX 4

MINIMUM BID: $500 Extraordinarily sharp and well- preserved high-grade 1933 Goudey card of Hall of Famer Herb Pennock, graded NM/MT 8 by SGC. Brilliantly rich color with a vivid blue background and bright borders, the corners are sharp and the card very well-centered, perhaps a tad low on the canvas, though hardly noteworthy. Overall, a tremendous, high-grade Hall of Famer from one of the hobby’s most popular and widely-collected sets. 35. 1933 Goudey #138 Herb Pennock (HOF) - SGC NM/MT 8

One of the keys to the M101-4/5 issues, the card of Honus Wagner is one of the most popular and highly-coveted cards of its era. This blank-backed version boasts a strong image of the Flying Dutchman nearing the end of his career, with some faint wear visible on the front, but strong corners and outstanding image quality. The flaw on this card is a heavy diagonal print line at the right, which begins at the right edge near Wagner’s hands and continues downward and to the left, into the print area of the

card, concluding with some light ink smudging in the text area. Regardless of the wear, the image is quite dark and bold, with similar print lines and light smudges faintly visible toward the left. Despite the print issues, this is an outstanding card, well-centered and with sharp corners, a very important late-career card of one of the game’s most popular players.
