Description

    1915 E106 Amer. Caramel Eddie Plank PSA EX 5 - Pop 1, Highest Graded Known. From a total population of only four, this is the nicest example graded to date by PSA and SGC has not graded one higher as well. Eddie Plank won 326 games during his career and retired with a 2.35 ERA and 2,246 strikeouts. With 305 Amer. League victories to his name, "Gettysburg Eddie" was the most successful American league pitcher until Walter Johnson notched the 306th win of his career. Eddie's final game in 1917 was a nail-biter and a heart breaker. Plank pitched the complete game plus two more to end up losing 1-0 in the 11th inning. His sole consolation was that he did lose out to the great Walter Johnson. Pictured for St. Louis of the short lived Federal league, this is the finest PSA-Graded E106 of Plank currently known. It would certainly be the finest known copy in the entire hobby if the amount of wear to the tip in the lower right corner was just a little less. Otherwise, a beautiful high end example for the advanced "E" collector, type-collector or Plank specialist.
