    Extremely Rare 1911 "Big Eater" Frank Arellanes SGC 60 EX 5 - The Only Example on Record!
    Heritage Sports has presented almost 100,000 lots in its history and this is the first "Big Eater" card we have had the opportunity to bring to its bidders. That's how extremely rare this Pacific Coast League regional featuring the Sacramento Solons truly is... and this auction features two examples! A California native, Frank played just three season (1908-10) before finding himself playing with Sacramento of the PCL, the league where he spent most of his 11-season baseball career. A very clean card with no creasing, wrinkles or stains, mild corner wear and a very nicely centered portrait. Graded SGC 60 EX 5, this is the only example graded by SGC to date from a total population of only twenty and one of three to grade at the EX level. PSA has yet to grade their first "Big Eater."

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
