    1924 Aguilitas Cigars John Henry "Pop" Lloyd #870 PSA Good 2 - The Finest PSA Example. This significant and extremely rare card is the first opportunity Heritage has had the honor of offering to our bidders. Hard to believe this unassuming card from the 1924 Aguilitas Cigars series featuring Hall of Famer John Henry "Pop" Lloyd is one of the more significant Negro League cards in the entire hobby. The name reads "Sam Lloyd" but the face is unmistakably legendary Hall of Famer John Henry "Pop" Lloyd. The crisp portrait depicts Lloyd from his playing days in Cuba where he played winter ball with Havana. This is one of less than ten cards to feature Lloyd during his 26 year career and is now ranked among the best Negro/Cuban League talents of all-time. Lloyd batted .340 lifetime BA who flirted or surpassed the exalted .400 mark over a half dozen times and and was referred to as the "Black Wagner." A comparison Honus took as a compliment. He was finally elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1977. For those where it is actually a concern, we can state the card is graded PSA Good 2. There are only two total on record with PSA and this is the finer of the pair. Any condition issue fail to affect the central portrait which shows a full range of values and incredible detail.
