    1910 E98 "Set of 30" Fred Clarke, Blue Background SGC 40 VG 3 - "Old Put Cigars" Stamp Back. For the longest time, all (very few actually) of the of E98 cards that had a Purple "Old Put 5 ct. Cigar" stamp on the back also had red backgrounds surrounding player portraits. New discoveries have revealed a few "Old Put" cards with Blue backgrounds (Roger Bresnahan with red is available elsewhere in this auction) but so far not a single Orange or Green background card has been confirmed. It was the perfect avenue for some enterprising cigar shop owner to generate some cheap advertising. While some speculate they were inserted into cigar packages it would stand to reason if that were true they wouldn't be in such low supply. Offered is a rare "Old Put" stamp back of Hall of Famer Fred Clarke with a rare Blue background! Graded SGC 40 VG 3.

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