1914 E & S Publishing Co. Buck Weaver Postcard - Highest Graded!
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $829.50
This exceptionally rare 1914 postcard, issued by the E & S Publishing Co. of Chicago, features Chicago White Sox shortstop Buck Weaver, one of the infamous "Eight Men Out" who later conspired to throw the 1919 World Series. As is the style of these cards, an illustration of Weaver appears in the center, surrounded by cartoon vignettes illustrating facts regarding his baseball career. Included among the cartoons here is a reference to Weaver's participation in the 1914 World Tour made by the Chicago White Sox and New York Giants. This postcard (5.5 x 3.75 inches) is graded SGC EX 60 and represents the highest-graded example on record by PSA and SGC. It presents much better than the assigned grade and has been downgraded due to a light wrinkle on the reverse. This is a particularly rare card of future "Black Sox" member Buck Weaver and an ideal sample card from the E & S Publishing postcard set. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $829.50
