    Description

    1911 Baltimore Newsboy E94 Ty Cobb SGC Fair 20. While a spark of recognition should flare in the minds of those familiar with the "Close Candy" version of the seldom seen E94, the degree of scarcity is magnified even further with this all-but-extinct variation from "The Baltimore Newsboy Series." This is, in fact, the only representation ever to take residence in an SGC slab, while the PSA population reports make no mention of the variation whatsoever. The obvious difference between the Baltimore Newsboy and Close Candy versions is that the former features the player images against a light blue background, though the card back is likewise changed, with a list of the players in the set below an offer of a "Prize of $1.00 to First 35 Boys Getting Full Set of the Following." Condition is admittedly imperfect here, with creasing near the corners and mild spots of staining, but the card presents very attractively despite the flaws. And it goes without saying that such a supreme rarity demands a tremendous amount of leeway when it comes to such considerations, as a hunt for any other specimen at all, much less a finer one, will almost certainly be in vain.
