Elmer Flick Single-Signed Baseball
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,276.00
"Big League Clark" candy bar premium baseball signed by Elmer Flick ("9") on the side panel below the sweet spot in blue ink. Elmer Flick was one of the great sluggers of the deadball era. His career spanned from 1898 to 1910. While he is not a household name today, in his prime in the early part of the century he was one of the game's greatest stars. In fact, the Tigers offered to trade Ty Cobb even-up for Flick following the 1907 season, but Cleveland declined. In his ten seasons as a regular, Flick never batted lower than .297, and he retired with a .313 lifetime batting average. Flick single-signed baseballs are rare. This is not surprising as Flick passed away in 1971, long before collecting Hall of Famers on single-signed baseballs became widely recognized as the ideal standard. This is a spectacular high-grade example, one of the finest we have seen, on a very unusual 1960s baseball which was a mail-in premium from Clark Candy Bar. LOAs from Mike Gutierrez/GAI and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,276.00
