Extremely rare sample card from the 1953 Stop & Shop Boston Red Sox series featuring Bill Goodman. This is one of only four players to comprise this regionally issued set. The cards (3.75 x 5 inches) feature a black-and-white image of the player with a facsimile signature across the front and the local food chain advertising on the reverse. These cards were most likely given out at player appearances at local supermarkets in Boston. The offered card is technically in Good condition due to several unobtrusive creases and a moisture stain on the left border. This is a very presentable example of this exceptionally rare postwar regional issue, which advanced collectors recognize as among the rarest of all regional postwar card issues. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
