C. 1948 Pittsburgh Provision & Packing Co. Honus Wagner Tribute Card. There is a song that says, "you shouldn't tug on Superman's cape or spit into the wind" and you shouldn't put down baseball legend Honus Wagner in the city of Pittsburgh. Well after his retirement as a player in 1917, he was a vehicle for sales for Pittsburgh businesses. Offered is a rare 3-7/8" x 2-1/4" one-color promo card created by the Pittsburgh Provision & Packing Co. promoting their "Irish Hams & Bacon" products. Issued circa 1948, this rarely seen card features "The Flying Dutchmen" in a relaxing dugout pose, gazing to the right, almost proudly admiring his yearly batting average stats. A great addition to any Wagner collection.

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