Circa 1909 Hughie Jennings Cigar Box Labels (2)
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $474.00
Pair of circa 1909 Hughie Jennings cigar box labels, one familiar, and one seldom (if ever) seen. The more commonly found label (9 x 7.25 inches), of which there was a large find many years ago, features Hall of Famer Hughie Jennings in his classic one-legged pose pictured in the center. A generic baseball illustration is displayed to the left and right of his image. The slogan at the top reads "Hey-Yea" "Get-A-Lead" in gold-trimmed embossed lettering. The label is toned, with a few minor areas of light discoloration along the borders. In Very Good condition. The second label is much rarer and represents the first example we have ever seen or handled. Measuring 5 x 5.25 inches, the small label features the same exact image of Jennings without the additional generic illustrations. The same slogan, "Hey-Yea" "Get-A-Lead," appears above in black lettering. In Near Mint condition overall. The labels have been mounted and framed together to total dimensions of 24 x 15 inches. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $474.00
