Pair of extremely attractive sample cards from the 25-card 1910 D322 Tip Top Bread set issued by the Ward-Mackey Company. This very scarce set was regionally issued in the Pittsburgh area, and features only members of the Pirates, the National League champions of the previous year. The reverse has advertising for Tip Top Bread, and provides a complete checklist for the set. Each card has been graded and encapsulated by SGC (submitted by REA): Kirby White (VG/EX+ 55, bright, crisp, and clean with a bold red background, perfect registration, and excellent centering) and Owen Wilson (VG 40, vibrant colors and a crisp image, but has been appropriately downgraded due to a faint crease visible on the reverse). This is an extremely attractive pair of sample cards from this scarce prewar food issue. Total: 2 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
