1915 Zeenut PCL Fred McMullen ("Black Sox")
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $7,050
Graded VG 40 by SGC. One of only two examples graded at this level by SGC, with none graded higher. The 1915 Zeenut card of Fred McMullen, featuring him with the Los Angeles Angels of the PCL, is an extremely significant card both as a Zeenut rarity and as the only insert baseball card known of 1919 Black Sox member Fred McMullen. (The only other known vintage card of McMullen ever issued is the 1917 Chicago White Sox team issue and there is only one example known of that card.) McMullen was a platoon third baseman who only managed one home run in his entire career. Although he batted only twice in the entire 1919 World Series, he was still banned for life from the game of baseball for his part in the conspiracy. This example has a perfect image, with couple of tiny surface creases (virtually undetectable), evenly rounded corners, and a little surface chipping/ruffling along the left and right edges. This is an outstanding card in terms of condition for any Zeenut, let alone for such an important card in the series. Technically Vg condition, appears nicer. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $7,050
