Description

    1902-11 W600 Sporting Life - Type 1 Napoleon Lajoie (Street) SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5 - Very Rare Green Mount! This is an extra special lot for Heritage as it is the first time we have the opportunity to offer this extremely rare W600 variant to our bidders. The exquisite Carl Horner photograph of the Hall of Fame second baseman acts as the centerpiece of this series as the source employed on Lajoie's T206, Fan Craze, Souvenir PC and E96 appearances. The same portrait is seen on his rookie card debut in the historical E107 Breisch Williams edition. The central images of these large and impressive cabinets unarguably hold a highly elevated level of glamour and desirability. The hobby is indebted to the Sporting Life for producing these spectacular treasures. The portrait seems all too appropriate for upholding the regality of one of the most revered players in the hobby. The mount is a "Type 1" format utilized in 1902 and carries the 1902 date. Lajoie is without question a key Hall of Famer from a difficult series considering the comprehensive scope of the issue.

    Graded SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5. The total PSA and SGC population for Lajoie in street clothes is just five. This is one of two confirmed with the unique green card mount. The blank reverse is very clean, Napoleon's portrait is crisp and problem-free. Any W600 Lajoie is a significant addition to a collection. When that card is a rare variation, a collection goes straight to elite status.
