1926 Zeenut PCL Complete Set Minus 1 (171/172) Including Lloyd Waner, Averill, O'Doul
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,406
Complete set minus 1 (missing Fenton for completion) of 171 different (of the 172 in set as checklisted in The Standard Catalog ) 1926 Zeenut cards featuring Pacific Coast League players, highlighted by Hall of Famers Lloyd Waner and Earl Averill, and also Lefty O'Doul. The 1926 Zeenut set is comprised of players from eight different teams (Hollywood, Los Angeles, Mission, Oakland, Portland, Sacramento, San Francisco, and Seattle). A complete set (minus 1) such as this is very rarely seen. This is the first time we have ever offered a near-set of 1926 Zeenuts. The cards range from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt from the front (with a few slightly lesser), but technically grade lower due to the player's position neatly written on the back of each card in either pencil or ink (except one card that has no writing). We have submitted three cards to be graded by SGC. Keys: Earl Averill (FAIR 20, Nr/Mt appearance from the front downgraded for the letters "OF" to indicate his position as outfielder written in ink on the back), O'Doul (FAIR 20, Ex-Mt appearance from the front downgraded for the letters "OF" to indicate his position as outfielder written in ink on the back), and Lloyd Waner (FAIR 20, Ex-Mt appearance from the front downgraded for his name "Lloyd" and the letters "sub. of." written in ink on the back). 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 have a far superior appearance than suggested by their technically accurate modest grades. This "comes with the territory" with Zeenuts. This 1926 Zeenut set (minus 1) 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: 171 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $4,406
