1910 D322 Tip Top Bread Pittsburgh Pirates Complete Set (25)
Starting Bid - $2,000.00, Sold For - $23,500.00
Complete set of 1910 D322 Tip Top Bread Pittsburgh Pirates. This extremely rare 25-card set was regionally issued in the Pittsburgh area by the Ward-Mackey Company, one card per loaf. Each card features a member of the Pirates, the National League champions of the previous year. Even sample cards from this set are rare. Literally only a few complete sets of D322 Tip Top Bread cards have ever been assembled. This set, consigned from a longtime Pittsburgh-area collector, is the first complete set we have ever had the privilege of offering. The entire set has been graded and encapsulated by PSA (with the exception of one card which is graded by SGC). The key card in the set is Honus Wagner. This is one of Wagner's rarest and most striking cards, and features the same Carl Horner image as appears on his famous T206 card. The reverse of each card has advertising for Tip Top Bread, and provides a complete checklist for the set. The PSA condition report is as follows: Four VG-EX 4: Adams, Wilson, O'Connor, and White. Eight VG 3: Locke, Leach, Camnitz, Maddox, Abbaticchio, Leever, Hyatt, and Forbes Field. Seven GOOD 2: Leifield, Phillippe, Byrne, Webb, Campbell, Simon, Boy Mascot. Six PR-FR 1: Wagner, Clarke, Dreyfuss, Gibson, Miller, and Flynn (SGC POOR 10). Though the cards in this set vary in grade, several cards are particularly strong, and most of even the lowes- graded examples have tremendous eye-appeal. Total 25 cards. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000/$6,000. SOLD FOR $23,500.00
