Lot # 197 (of 873)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1934 R304 Al Demaree Die-Cut Card Collection (2)

Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $1,265.00

Two high-grade examples, #19 Ted Lyons (HOF) and #94 Johnny Frederick, from the R304 Demaree die-cuts series issued by Chicago's Dietz Gum Company in 1934. Demaree die-cuts are among the rarest of all 1930s gum issues. Their unusual design combines black-and-white photographic player portraits with cartoon body art drawn by former Major League pitcher Al Demaree (hence, the name "Demaree die-cuts"). These two R304s are both complete with tabs intact. Both are clean and crisp, grading Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt. A very sharp pair, including Hall of Famer Ted Lyons, of one of the hobby's scarcest 1930s gum issues. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$700. SOLD FOR $1,265.00
