Graded VG 40 by SGC. Rare Texas Tommy Type 1 sample card featuring Chief Meyers of the New York Giants. Texas Tommys were issued with candy bars of that name by the "Cardinet Candy Co." of Oakland, California. Texas Tommy Type 1 cards each have the headline "Texas Tommy" printed on the reverse, below which is a very substantial biography (as opposed to Type 2 cards, which have blank backs). The card has a diagonal crease in the upper left portion, even corner wear, and is centered to the extreme right (centering issues are common with this series). Though technically modest in grade, the card still displays beautifully. It also has a particularly clean reverse, which is especially desirable for a sample card from this unusual and rare set. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++.
