1910 Ramly Cigarettes Pittsburgh Nationals Team Composite Print
Starting Bid - $800.00, Sold For - $3,162.50
Please Note: We have been made aware of the existence of a Ramly premium coupon which offers a 1910 Pirates display print "suitable for framing" and specifically states the size of the print as 23 x 18.5 inches. The coupon almost certainly refers to this item, which measures 20 x 15.75 inches, and suggests that the large margins of the offered print were very slightly trimmed when framed.Previously undiscovered display print published by Ramly Cigarettes features portraits of 17 members of the 1910 Pittsburgh Nationals. This is a particularly exciting find, all the more so because the print includes Honus Wagner, and is a tobacco-related issue. The portrait of Wagner is, in fact, the very same as the portrait which appears on the famous T206 baseball card. The 1910 Pittsburgh Nationals finished the season in third place with an 86-67 record, led by Honus Wagner, Fred Clarke, and Tommy Leach. It is rare to find any previously undiscovered display composite, especially from the 1910 era, let alone an example with a significance relating so directly to card collecting's greatest legend. Measures an impressive 20 x 15.75 inches. The print has a few very light creases in the background, and a small fold in the upper left corner, and is otherwise in overall Excellent condition. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500. SOLD FOR $3,162.50
