    Description

    1934 R & J Hill Tris Speaker #48 BVG EX-MT+ 6.5. Among the great hitters of the early 20th century, Tris Speaker must be mentioned in the same conversation alongside Cobb, Jackson, Wagner and Lajoie. During a remarkable 22-year career, Speaker finished with over 3,500 hits and a lifetime batting average of .345. And he was a pretty spectacular outfielder as well. Issued for the London market, this scarce card from the R & J Hill "Sports" series is titled "Baseball" but the card clearly features the baseball great. The real-photo paper used for these sets are prone to surface creases or bending. High-grade examples are a challenge to acquire. Graded BVG EX-MT+ 6.5. Note: There is some sticker residue on the BVG holder.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
