1907-1909 PC805 Novelty Cutlery Nap Lajoie
Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $948.00
Magnificent example of Hall of Fame second baseman Nap Lajoie from the rare and highly regarded PC805 postcard set issued by the Novelty Cutlery Co. of Canton, Ohio, in 1907. The PC805 series is universally recognized as one of the most desirable of all baseball postcard issues. These cards have always been appreciated by collectors both for their extreme rarity and distinctive style. The card is very crisp and clean with minimal, even wear to the corners. The reverse is spotless with only two thumbnail-size areas of paper loss at the top and bottom caused by the removal of adhesive long ago used to mount the card. Do not be fooled by the modest grade! This card has an appearance far superior to its technically accurate grade and would easily grade VG-EX to EX if not for the extremely minor back damage. This is a stunning and rare card of one of the era's most legendary stars. Dimensions: 3.5 x 5.5 inches. Reserve $400. Estimate $800+. SOLD FOR $948.00
