Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Extremely attractive high-grade example of the key card, Honus Wagner, 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. This is one of Honus Wagner's most striking and rare cards, and features the same Carl Horner image as appears on his famous T206 card. The reverse has advertising for Tip Top Bread, and provides a complete checklist for the set. The offered card is an extremely strong example that presents at a level far superior to its assigned SGC grade of VG/EX. It is very bright and clean, front and back, with vibrant colors, flawless registration, outstanding centering, a little corner wear, and a tiny corner crease in the upper left. This is a beautiful (and for this set very high grade) example of this card, one of the finest we have ever seen, which is universally recognized as among the scarcest and most attractive of all Honus Wagner cards. Reserve $5,000. Estimate $10,000++.
