1915 Zeenut PCL Fred McMullen ("Black Sox")
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,148
Graded VG 40 by SGC. One of only three examples graded at this level by SGC, with none graded higher. The 1915 Zeenut card of Fred McMullen, featuring him with the Los Angeles Angels of the PCL, is an extremely significant card both as a Zeenut rarity and as the only insert baseball card known of this 1919 Black Sox member. (The only other known vintage card of McMullen ever issued is the 1917 Chicago White Sox team issue and there is only one example known of that card.) McMullen was a platoon third baseman who only managed one home run in his entire career. Although he batted only twice in the entire 1919 World Series, he was still banned for life from the game of baseball for his part in the conspiracy. This example has a perfect image, with a couple of insignificant tiny creases along the bottom (more noticeable from the reverse), light wear on the square corners, and centered to the bottom. This is an outstanding card in terms of condition for any Zeenut, let alone for such an important card in the series. Technically Vg condition, but appears nicer. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000++.
SOLD FOR $4,148
