1953 Hunter Wieners Partial Set (14)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,659.00
Rarely offered partial set of 1953 Hunter Wieners cards consisting of 14 different of the 26 cards in the set and highlighted by Hall of Famers Stan Musial, Al Schoendienst, and Enos Slaughter. This regionally issued set features exclusively St. Louis Cardinals players. These cards originate from the childhood collection of our consignor, who personally (in 1953!) diligently cut these cards from the two-card panels issued with each pack of Hunter hot dogs. Condition has always been a problem with these cards due to their method of issue. Technically, the cards range from Pr to Vg, but this collection compares favorably to many of the other surviving cards from this rare set. Included are the following: Brazle, Haddix, Hemus, Jablonski, Johnson, Lowrey, Miller, Mizell, Musial (Fr), Rice, Schoendienst (Pr), Slaughter (Vg), Staley, and Stanky. This is an extremely attractive partial set with some of the trademark problems expected with cards packaged with food as these were. An impressive, original-owner collection of these regionally issued cards highlighted by the presence of three key Hall of Famers. Total: 14 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,659.00
