    1910 Geo. Davis "American Sports" (Orange Borders) Near Complete Box with Devlin and Tigers! Just like the "All Star Base-Ball Package" box found elsewhere in this auction, this rare find answered all the pertinent hobby questions. The cards themselves reveal no maker and simply called "Orange Borders" for obvious reasons. This box confirms they are a product of "Geo. Davis Co., Inc." One side panel reads, "American Sports" the opposite side panel reads "Candy and Jewelry" and encourages the buyer to open and examine before purchasing. How times have changed.

    This is the only box of this rare series Heritage has offered and is one of only a few near complete boxes we are aware of. One facing panel features Art Devlin of the New York Giants, the other features the "American League Champions, 1909" - the Detroit Tigers. The top panel advertises a promotion consisting of 144 subjects. The past century has revealed just over 30 subjects and the two 1909 League Champions. The box is in VG condition with some creasing, and short separations where the top and bottom panels meet facing panels. The only missing portion is single inner tab. Vintage boxes and packaging are fascinating additions to any vintage collection.
