    Description

    1932 U.S. Caramel Lefty O'Doul #24 SGC 40 VG 3. This auction features the final examples from a fresh collection of U.S. Caramels that yielded some the nicest cards to surface in decades. We have to thank the very existence of this collection on a descendent of the man who bought them in back in 1932 and obviously and wisely choose to never handle them. The classic "cigar box" find, the cards lay dormant for the better part of a century in a box adorned, appropriately enough, with stamps and paper ephemera about the 1932 Olympics. O'Doul was such a close friend of Joe DiMaggio that the Yankee Clipper invited him along on his honeymoon with Marilyn Monroe. Regardless of the technical grade, Lefty couldn't look much better than he does here on this example, now graded SGC 40 VG 3. Close to perfect centering, four quality corners (two show barely any wear), clean surfaces minimally affected by two linear impressions in the card stock.

    Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am regarding the sale of my hockey jersey. You were great to work with, you answered all my phone calls and e-mails in a prompt manner, and you did a great job marketing the jersey.
