Masterpieces and Uncommon Commons XXVII
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on 6/4/2010
A tough-guy, who left home at 17 to find his fortune in baseball, Gandil also boxed in local heavyweight bouts, commonly earning $150 a night (not bad pay in the 20th Century’s first decade). A solid .277 hitter, Gandil’s greed got the best of him. His association with gamblers paved the way for the Black Sox Scandal. Without question, Gandil’s 1915 Cracker Jack is his most desired card. To find an available example at PSA 8 is nothing short of astounding. Even more intriguing, we would recommend a re-grade on this marvelous relic. The card exhibits very few minor faults. A re-grade resulting in even a half-point increase would make this the highest graded Gandil on record.
POP REPORT: Exceeded by 2 PSA 8.5’s.
