1910 D322 Tip Top Bread Pittsburgh Pirates Collection (9) Including Wagner and Dreyfuss
Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $5,036.25
Collection of nine cards from the D322 Tip Top Bread set highlighted by Hall of Famers Honus Wagner and Barney Dreyfuss. Each card has been graded and encapsulated by PSA. This extremely rare 25-card set was regionally issued in the Pittsburgh area by the Ward-Mackey Company, one card per loaf. Each card features a member of the Pirates, the National League champions of the previous year. Even sample cards from this set are rare. The key card in the set is Honus Wagner. This is one of Wagner's rarest and most striking cards, and features the same Carl Horner image as appears on his famous T206 card. The Barney Dreyfuss is also a very important card as it is the only contemporary card issued featuring the Hall of Fame executive. The reverse of each card has advertising for Tip Top Bread, and provides a complete checklist for the set. The PSA condition report is as follows: GOOD+ 2.5 (1 card): Simon. GOOD 2 (2 cards): Dreyfuss (HOF) and White (MK). FAIR 1.5 (1 card): O'Connor (MK). POOR 1 (5 cards): Campbell, Forbes Field, Locke (MK), Miller, and Wagner (HOF, MK). This is small and powerful group, in low grade but still pleasing, containing two of the key cards to this challenging set. Total: 9 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $5,036.25
