1928 F50 Yuengling's Ice Cream #26 Lou Gehrig - PSA EX 5
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,422
Graded EX 5 by PSA. One of only seven examples graded at this level by PSA. The set is identical in design to E210 York Caramels, Tharps Ice Cream, and W502, but the reverse of each card features advertising for Yeungling’s Ice Cream. The reverse informs kids that a prize will be given for each Babe Ruth card turned in and that "a gallon of Yeungling's ice cream will be delivered in exchange for a complete set of sixty cards." Bright and clean, both front and back, with just a hint of border toning, a slight "diamond" cut, and a touch of wear to the corners. Extremely rare and classic card of Gehrig dating from the peak of his powers in the 1920s, when the Yankees' Ruth and Gehrig (and the rest of Murderers' Row) ruled the baseball world. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,422
