Pair of extremely attractive sample cards from the 1913 Voskamp's Coffee series. Each card has been graded and encapsulated by SGC (submitted by REA). Voskamp's Coffee cards were regionally issued only in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and, naturally, feature members of the Pittsburgh Pirates, highlighted by the team's superstar, Honus Wagner. The back of the cards feature advertising for Voskamp's Coffee and Tea, a complete checklist for the set, and details of a redemption program for seats at Pirates games. All Voskamp's Coffee cards are extremely rare. Only sixty-two Voskamps in total (of any subject!) have been graded by SGC. 1) Everitt Bodie (SGC Authentic, there is evidence of a repair to a heavy vertical crease down the right portion of the card, otherwise Vg) and 2) Ham Hyatt (SGC VG 40, Ex-Mt appearance downgraded due to a few light wrinkles near the top and right edges). This is an exceptional pair of sample cards from this very rare regional set, which would make a significant addition to any Pirates or type-card collection. Total: 2 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate 500+.
