Description1895 N300 Mayo's Cut Plug Buck Ewing (Cleveland) SGC Good 2. From the John Esch Collection. From the 1940 Official Baseball Guide: "William (Buck) Ewing is considered by many to have been the greatest all-around player who ever lived. Some go even further and rate Buck... the best ballplayer of all time. He could run, bat – and how he could throw! When he was catching, he would squat down behind the plate and seemingly hand the ball to whoever was playing second base." Ewing is depicted in his Cleveland jersey on this very attractive card. The front of the card is superior, with minor corner wear and tiny amount of surface loss, but great centering and image quality. The reverse features surface scratches. Graded SGC Good 2.
Guide Value or Estimate: $1,500 - up.
Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
