The five pins offered here are: Dahlen, S.S. (Chicago; Ex), McAleer, C.F. (Cleveland; light contrast; Ex), Merritt (Pittsburg; Ex), Peitz, C. (Cincinnati; Vg), and Tucker (Boston; Vg). All of the original paper backs remain completely intact. Manufactured by Whitehead & Hoag. Total: 5 pins. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500++. SOLD FOR $1,422
