Description1957 Kahn's Wieners Baseball Near Set (27/29). John Esch collection. The Kahn's Wieners Baseball sets from the 1950's are among the most challenging sets to complete due to their limited regional distribution. This is even more true for those who concentrate on the visual as the cards were sold in direct contact with the meats and are just about always stained to some degree. Offered is a 27-card near set of the 1957 edition. Missing Clemente & F. Robinson but available elsewhere in this auction. Nine cards have been graded by SGC. Includes: Acker, Bailey, Bell (SGC Good+ 2.5), Burgess (Inc), Crowe (SGC VG-EX 4), Face (SGC EX 5), Freemen, Friend (SGC VG-EX 4), Groat/Dick (SGC VG-EX 4), Groat/Richard (Inc), Gross, Hacker, Hoak (Inc), Jeffcoat, Kline, Klippstein, Kluszewski (SGC Fair 1.5), Lawrence, Long, Mazeroski (SGC VG+ 3.5), McMillan, Nuxhall, Post, Temple (SGC Good 2), Thomas, Thurman (SGC Fair 1.5), Walls. Grades 33% VG to EX, 67% PR to GD with a few missing bottom ads, see (Inc) above.

Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
