    1913 Derby Cigar Philadelphia Athletics Plank & Mack Uncut Panel! The Derby Cigar series is an extremely rare edition that ranks among the rarest 20th century releases. Even the most advanced collections failed to include a single example. They are paper thin, colorful and nicely produced with rich metallic gold decoration complementing a deep red backdrop. Up until 2012, the dozen subjects were all teammates from the 1909 New York Giants. It was then that a discovery of twelve Derby Cigars cards was made and every player was from the Philadelphia Athletics! The cards were found glued into an old magazine and they came in pairs. Still, their exact distribution, origin, and age remained unknown. A Net54 post in 2013 showed a complete page of the Athletics that was pictured with other items from 1913, all pieces are from the Hall of Fame's collection. It is still unknown if there is any connection to Derby Cigars as what is on the back of this special promo piece is still unknown. Offered is one of the six panels from that same find featuring HoF pitcher Eddie Plank and HoF Manager Connie Mack! Each hand cut panel is approx. 3-3/8" x 2-1/2" and this was the only panel to have two Hall of Famers. The assumed date of issue was previously thought to be 1909. The only years all twelve of the Athletics took the field together was 1913 and 1914. The only year all twenty-four players played for these two teams was in 1913 when the Athletics defeated the Giants to win the 1913 World Championship! Encapsulated SGC Authentic. This is the first opportunity to acquire at auction one of the panels since the original offering in a Heritage Platinum Night auction in 2012.

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