Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Only one example graded higher by SGC! Extremely attractive high-grade example of Marty O'Toole from the 1913 Voskamp's Coffee series. Voskamp's Coffee cards were regionally issued only in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and naturally feature exclusively members of the Pittsburgh Pirates, highlighted by the team's superstar, Honus Wagner. All Voskamp's Coffee cards are extremely rare. Only sixty-two examples in total (of any subject) have been graded by SGC. The offered card presents at a far superior level than suggested by the assigned technical grade. Bright and crisp, both front and back, with light toning on the reverse. Four strong, square corners, with only a small bend at the bottom left corner responsible for the VG/EX grade. The back of card features advertising for Voskamp's Coffee and Tea, a complete checklist for the set, and details of the redemption program for seats at Pirates games. This is an exceptional card from this very rare regional set, presenting as EX in our opinion, which would make a significant addition to any Pirates or sample-card collection. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
