    Extremely Rare 1911 "Big Eater" Fuller Thomson SGC 40 VG 3 - The Only Example on Record! Fuller Thomson did make it across country to play in the majors just one year after this extremely rare "Big Eater" card circulated. In 1911, Thomson pitched for the Boston Rustlers ending the season 0-0 W-L and a 3.86 ERA. As the only example graded by SGC, this card is far more impressive than his record. There is consistent corner rounding and two small spots of reverse surface loss. Graded SGC 40 VG 3, this is the only example graded by SGC to date from a total population of only twenty, PSA has yet to grade their first "Big Eater." This and the Arellanes offered elsewhere in this auction are the first "Big Eater" cards we have had the opportunity to bring to its bidders. That's how extremely rare this Pacific Coast League regional is. We can only hope eating "Big Eater" candy or caramel(?) was as sweet as owning one of these famous west-coast rarities.
