1904 Allegheny Card Co. Jack Warner - PSA NM-MT 8
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $705
Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Pristine sample card from the legendary Allegheny Card Company set of 1904, featuring New York Giants' catcher Jack Warner. Warner was with Giants for eight seasons. To date, the only known Allegheny Card Co. set is the one sold in the auction of the famous Copeland Collection. (Copeland purchased that set, then housed in its original box, from REA in 1990.) The set was eventually broken up and dispersed to the four corners of the collecting world. There has yet to be a single additional card from this series to ever surface. This sample, of course, originates from the Copeland set, and as is the case with all Allegheny cards, may very well be unique. The set is of special interest to collectors, not just because of its extreme rarity, but also because of its year of issue. Very few sets of baseball cards were produced during the first few years of the century. The Allegheny card set is one of the few, and offers a unique blend of players from the pre-1900 and post-1900 eras, including many players which appear in few (if any) other sets. Bright and crisp, and centered slightly to the right (approximately 60/40 L/R) with a slight tilt to the image. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $705
