Tremendous Hoard of 794 W514 Strip Cards

Starting Bid - $2,500.00, Sold For - $12,760.00

Incredible hoard of 794 "strip cards" from the 1919-1921 W514 series. There is, of course, much duplication. This massive hoard is highlighted by an incredible 128 Hall of Famers (23 different) and 26 "Black Sox" players (6 different) including six Joe Jacksons. Includes the following (quantities are noted in parenthesis): #1 (3), 4 (6), 5 (4), 6 (2), 7 (7), 8 (2), 9 (10), 10 (4), 11 (8), 12 (6), 13 (7), 14 (5), 15 Joe Jackson (6 cards: 2 Gd, 4 Fr), 16 (4), 17 Luque (6), 18 (6), 19 (6), 20 (7), 21a Maranville - Braves (3), 22 Carey (8), 23 (6), 24 (3), 25 Collins (3), 26 (9), 27 (6), 28 (3), 29 (3), 30 (8), 31 Gandil, 32 (6), 33 (7), 34 Huggins (3), 35 L. Williams (5), 36 (7), 37 (4), 38 (4), 39 (4), 40a Bancroft - Quakers (7), 40b Bancroft - Giants (3), 41 Griffith (13), 42 (20), 43 Ty Cobb (7 cards: 5 G-Vg, 2 Gd), 44 (14), 45 (18), 46 (12), 47a (13), 48 (19), 49 (10), 50 (18), 51 (13), 52 McGraw (3), 53 (14), 54 (6), 55 (11), 56 Hornsby (3), 57 (10), 58 (9), 59 (7), 60 Schalk (7), 61 (10), 62 Lajoie (5), 63 (11), 64 Hooper (12), 65 Alexander (4), 66 (11), 67 (12), 68 (9), 69 Faber (5), 70 (7), 71 (5), 72 Mathewson (4), 73 (4), 74 (4), 76 (12), 77 (6), 78 (10), 79 Rice (7), 80 (4), 81 (10), 82 Cicotte (7), 83 (9), 84 (2), 85 Roush (4), 86 (5), 87 (7), 88 (8), 89 (7), 90 (4), 91 Weaver (4), 92 (5), 93 (5), 95 Crawford (4), 96 (13), 97 (9), 98, 99 (9), 100 (6), 101 Sisler (3), 102 Speaker (5), 103 (5), 104 (10), 105 Risberg (3), 106a Jennings - Tigers (2), 106b Jennings - Giants (3), 107 (8), 108 (7), 109 (3), 110 Wheat (8), 111 (3), 112 (3), 113 Stengel, 114 Chase (5), 115 (6), 116 (6), 117 (5), 118 (6), 119 (9), 120 (3). Condition flaws for the group are those typical for strip cards, ranging from traditional wear and creases, to miscuts, minor paper loss, and/or ink writing. Even the lowest graded cards in the lot exhibit an integrity and are very collectible, but are simply in low grade (not an uncommon fate for strip cards). Condition ranges from Poor to Vg-Ex (includes some slightly better), with approximately equal representation at each grade level. Overall the lot grades Good to Very Good. Tremendous break-up value. Total 794 cards. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000/$10,000. SOLD FOR $12,760.00
