    1911 M131 Baltimore Newsboy Tris Speaker PSA VG 3 - Only Three PSA Examples! A spark of recognition should flare in the minds of those familiar with the "Close Candy" E94 cards. The degree of scarcity is magnified significantly with these even more challenging variants catalogued as M131 "The Baltimore Newsboy Series." Offered is Boston HoF outfielder Tris Speaker. The only obvious difference between an M131 and an E94 card are backs revealing an offer of a "Prize of $1.00 to First 35 Boys Getting Full Set of the Following." We can only wonder how many of the thirty-five prizes were ever redeemed. Graded PSA VG 3. This is one of a total of three representations to take residence in a PSA slab. The SGC population report adds just one. Such a rarity demands some leeway when it comes to condition. The hunt for any other specimen, much less a finer one, will certainly be a tedious adventure if not one totally in vain as no PSA card has graded higher than a "4."
