A much-prized rarity, this example of the minimally distributed memento from the earliest time of Casey Stengel's pro baseball career shows almost no evidence of handling - in a Major League clubhouse, or elsewhere. The hobbyist who has the pleasure of viewing this collectible is treated to the sight of pure, vintage Stengel. Here, Casey is shown prior to his ascent to the big leagues (with Brooklyn), and it would be decades more until he was commanding the likes of DiMaggio, Berra, Mantle ... and Throneberry.
An elite "1 of 1" at its tier with none graded higher, this remarkable piece stands alone at the pinnacle of its scant, five-card PSA census. The card concedes almost no corner wear, as that phrase is generally understood: all four tips retain admirable structural integrity, forming solid right angles, and it's only the full-bleed red that betrays vestiges of flaking at the surfaces of the outermost points. The photographic likeness is riveting in its detail, and the "Old Mill"-branded back design upholds solid quality in its inking.
