    Description

    Rare 1929 Rogers Peet Album and Two Uncirculated Cards. Rogers Peet was a chain of boys' clothing stores operating in New York City and Boston that started the "Order of Roperco" which, when you get down to it was a way to get kids to buy clothes. The 48-card multi-sports series was circulated in glassine envelopes with 4-cards in each. There was a specially designed think paper album to house the cards. Cards from this issue rank high on the rarity list and the approx. 5x8" 16-page album appears even less often. A selection of four cards was given away with an in-store purchase. The subject roster includes eight baseball players plus top names from the world of football, hockey, golfers plus others. Offered is a newly discovered album (near-mint), an original glassine envelope #'d 1 (mint) and two of the four cards found inside the envelope - #'s 25 Jack Sharkey (SGC 86 NM+ 7.5, Pop One, Highest!), and 37 Ed Wittmer (SGC 86 NM+ 7.5, Pop One, Highest!). The other two cards - W. Johnson and W. Hagen are available elsewhere in this auction.
