Description

    1902-11 W600 Sporting Life Napoleon Lajoie, Uniform SGC 30 Good 2. A regal Horner photograph of the Hall of Fame second baseman acts as the centerpiece of this extraordinary 5-1/4" x 7-1/2" premium artifact. The dignified likeness is the same illustration employed on Lajoie's famed caramel/tobacco card collectibles. The image is captioned with Lajoie's name, club affiliation, and position; the surround features an embossed advertisement for Sporting Life, the publication to which the hobby is indebted for producing the spectacular W600's, circa 1902-11. Graded SGC 30 Good 2, this copy is one of a meager census that lists just seven examples, in total. The premium's grade is qualified largely on the basis of the pencil marks on the reverse and a lone area of surface loss. Corner wear is modest and even. A key name from a difficult series considering the comprehensive scope of the issue.
