    Description

    1902-11 W600 Sporting Life (Type 1) Rube Waddell (Street Clothes-Philadelphia) PSA VG-EX 4. CORRECTION: This is a more desirable Type 1 card, the earliest version of W600 cabinets. Pop & ranking have been updated.

    Offered is a rare appearance by HoF pitcher Rube Waddell of Philadelphia from the W600 Sporting Life cabinet card series. Waddell is perhaps the flakiest and most undependable major league star of all time. He is infamous for showing up drunk for games on a regular basis. His legendary manager Connie Mack once remarked, "The Rube has a two million dollar body and a two cent head." Personal demons aside, Rube became a member of baseball's elite in Cooperstown in 1946. This is a very attractive Type I cabinet with an uncommon "Street Clothes" portrait with the Philadelphia team! Graded PSA VG-EX 4. There are four unspecified "Philadelphia A.L." examples and one confirmed "Philadelphia A.L.-Street-Type 1" on the PSA pop report. This is the second highest graded example of those five.
