Superb sample card of Stuffy McInnis (Philadelphia Athletics) from the extremely elusive 1912 E300 Plow's Candy issue. These unusual sepia toned, large format (3 x 4 inches) cards were not even known to exist until the 1960s, and this candy card issue is among the rarest of the era. The offered example presents with a crisp image, light corner wear, and near-perfect centering. Presenting as Very Good+ due to a pair of light wrinkles, this example has been encapsulated by PSA as "Authentic." Although we see no definitive alteration of any kind, we suspect that PSA may have detected evidence of a slight trim to the top edge. This is an outstanding example of this substantial and significant rarity, worthy of any advanced sample or prewar-card collection. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
