    Description

    1902-11 W600 Sporting Life Robert Wallace (Type 1) SGC 70 EX+ 5.5. He made his Major League debut as a pitcher for the 1894 Cleveland Spiders, part of a staff that featured fellow future Hall of Fame legends Cy Young and John Clarkson, but Wallace would soon transition to the shortstop position, quickly gaining a reputation as the best of the nascent American League. The offered relic finds Wallace in his prime, as the second-leading run producer for the 1902 St. Louis Browns.

    The W600 is one of the most challenging issues of the Dead Ball Era, its limited original production and the delicacy of its oversized dimensions leaving few survivors a century after release. This is the finest example extant for Wallace, one of only four inhabiting an SGC slab, alone atop the rankings. Very close inspection reveals a degree of age-toning and slight edge and corner wear, but in such small quantities that even this elite assessment feels a bit stingy. A remarkable specimen for the uncompromising collector.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
