1921 Zeenut PCL Complete Set Minus 2 (167/169) Including Crawford and O'Doul
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $9,988
Complete set minus 2 (missing only Hale and Morse for completion) of 167 different (of the 169 in set as checklisted in The Standard Catalog) 1921 Zeenut cards featuring Pacific Coast League players, highlighted by Hall of Famer Sam Crawford and Lefty O'Doul. The 1921 Zeenut set is comprised of players from eight different teams (Los Angeles, Oakland, Portland, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Seattle, and Vernon). A complete set (minus 2) such as this is very rarely seen. We have never before offered a set or near-set of 1921 Zeenuts. 50% of the cards range from Vg to Ex (with a couple Ex-Mt), and 50% range from Pr to Gd-Vg. Keys: Sam Crawford (Vg-Ex appearance downgraded for the letter "P." written in ink on the front) and O'Doul (Vg appearance downgraded for the letter "P." written in ink on the front). As is usually the case with Zeenuts, the coupon at the bottom of each card has been neatly clipped away, as intended, to be redeemed for valuable prizes. Also as is usually the case with Zeenuts, most of the cards (even in the lowest grades) have a far superior appearance than suggested by their technically accurate modest grades. This "comes with the territory" with Zeenuts. This 1921 Zeenut complete set (minus 2) is part of an extraordinary comprehensive Zeenut collection, the finest we have ever handled. The collection was assembled over a period of many years by an extremely advanced pioneer collector, and has been broken down by year into a number of smaller but still very substantial lots. Total: 167 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000++.
