1923 Zeenut PCL Partial Set (153/196) Including Paul Waner Rookie and Yellowhorse

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $7,110.00

Collection of 153 of the 196 different 1923 Zeenut cards featuring Pacific Coast League players, highlighted by Hall of Famer Paul Waner's rookie card and Moses Yellowhorse (PCL star and the first full-blooded American Indian to have played in the Major Leagues). The 1923 Zeenut set is comprised of players from eight different teams (Los Angeles, Oakland, Portland, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Seattle, and Vernon). 1923 is the only year the Zeenut cards were issued in two different series. The "regular" series cards feature black-and-white photos and are dated 1923 (coupons have expiration date of April 1st, 1924), while the second series contains just twenty-four cards (all Oakland and San Francisco players) with sepia-toned images used from the 1922 Zeenut series, and are dated 1923 (coupons have expiration date of April 1st, 1923). A near set such as this is very rarely seen. All but fourteen of the cards have writing on the reverse, so while they would technically only grade Poor to Fair, we have assigned grades based solely on the front which, in many cases, presents extremely well. 18% grade Ex, 52% are evenly distributed Vg to Vg-Ex, and 30% range from Poor to Good. Keys: Paul Waner (POOR 10) and Yellowhorse (VG 40). The other graded card is Noack (VG+ 45). As is usually the case with Zeenuts, the coupon at the bottom of each card has been clipped away, as intended, to be redeemed for valuable prizes. The following cards are missing for completion: Agnew/sepia, Brown/Oakland, Carroll, Cooper/sepia, Daly/Portland, Eckert, Eller, Ellison/sepia, Geary/both, Gilder, H. High, Howard/sepia, Jones/Oakland, Keiser, King, Knight/sepia, Kopp, Lafayette/sepia, Lefevre, Lyons, Maderas, Marriott, McCabe/LA, Mitchell/sepia, Mulligan, Poole, Ramage, Read/sepia, Schneider, See, Siglin, Smith, Strand, Stumpf, Sutherland, Thomas/LA, Vargas, Wallace, Wilie/sepia, Yarrison, Yelle/sepia, and Zeider. This partial set is part of a large original-owner Zeenut collection, consigned to this auction by the family of the gentleman who collected these cards as a child, which we have broken down into smaller lots by year. Total: 153 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
SOLD FOR $7,110.00
