1912 E136 Home Run Kisses PCL Tom Raftery PSA EX 5 (1:1)
Starting Bid - $100.00, Sold For - $414.75
Graded EX 5 by PSA. "1 of 1," with no other examples at any level graded by PSA. High-grade sample card from the 1912 E136 Home Run Kisses series featuring Tom Raftery from the San Francisco Seals. Home Run Kisses was a brand name of the San Francisco based Collins-McCarthy Candy Company, which from 1911 to 1938 annually issued cards of Pacific Coast League players with its products. Due to its method of issue (one card per box) and large size (2-1/4 x 4-3/16 inches), Home Run Kisses are usually found in modest grade. This is an outstanding high-grade example. This particularly striking example is perfectly bright and clean, with a flawless surface, outstanding contrast, just the slightest hint of light wear to the square corners, and almost perfect centering. The blank reverse is also perfectly clean with a small advertising logo for "Bardell - Sepia - San Francisco" boldly printed in the lower right. The 90-card 1912 E136 Home Run Kisses set is one of the most highly prized of all Pacific Coast League issues and one of the scarcest of all 1910-era PCL card issues. This is an ideal high-grade sample card from this rare and extremely popular set. Reserve $100. Estimate $200+. SOLD FOR $414.75
