    Description

    1930's Baguer Chocolate Walter Johnson, "Zoologico" Card Album and Photo. The home of "Baguer Chocolate" was Havana, Cuba. Their claim to hobby fame is the 90-card series issued in 1930 featuring Major League baseball players. Identified on the reverse, the cards are small in size but present unique black-and-white portraits and the roster includes some of baseball's all-time greats. Offered is a high grade example of baseball legend Walter Johnson, graded SGC 80 EX/NM 6. Also included is a specially designed album to house an animal set titled, "Zoologico." The cover reads "Obsequio de los chocolates "La Estrella" y "Baguer" making it a joint venture with a publication named "The Star." The 8 x10-3/4" album is in fair to good condition with almost 100 of the 230 cards glued inside. Then third piece is a vintage 10 x 6-5/8" sepia photo of a Baguer Chocolate company truck with young boy in the driver's seat. The photo is glued to thick card stock with creasing and surface wear. Considering the subject, this was possibly passed down through one of the pictured men and probably one-of-a-kind.
