1910 D380 Clement Bros. Bread Addie Joss
Starting Bid - $1,000.00 , Sold For - $11,750.00
Graded FAIR 20 by SGC. Addie Joss from the extremely rare 1910 D380 Clement Bros. Bread series. Every once in a while a card crosses our desk that is incredible and which we have never before seen. This D380 Clement Bros. Bread of Hall of Famer Addie Joss is such a card. We were surprised to see this card was even checklisted as we were not aware that Joss was in the Clement Bros. set. We've just never seen one or even heard anyone mention the existence of this extremely significant card before. Joss tragically passed away from meningitis on April 14, 1911, cutting short one of baseball's greatest careers. This is easily one of his rarest cards. This is also an especially fascinating card as Joss is presented in the identical portrait pose as found in E90-1 American Caramel series, but is featured in a black-and-white rendition of this design. Clement Bros. Bakery cards were regionally issued only in Rochester, New York. All Clement Bros. Bread cards are extremely rare. This card is the highlight card of the extraordinary collection of thirty-six D380 Clement Bros. cards which are presented in this auction, and which were saved for decades by the family of the original owner. This is a very attractive card. We grade this card Good, with rounded corners, no major creases, some light staining, and pencil notations on the reverse. The back of the card features advertising for Clement Bros. bakery's bread and pies. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $11,750.00
