    Description

    1932 U.S. Caramel Tony Lazzeri #18 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. If Lou Gehrig lived in the shadow of Babe Ruth, you can only imagine what life was like for Tony Lazzeri, who would have led the American League in homers during the fabled 1927 Yankees season if not for his two mega-star teammates. Like the man with whom he shared the right side of the Yankee infield for a dozen seasons, Lazzeri's life was far too short, the hard-slugging second sacker passing away in 1946 at age forty-two. Graded SGC 40 VG 3, this card is basically EX/MT with two light corner creases.
