    Description

    1930 & 1931 New York Giants Silver Season Passes Issued to Col. Jacob Ruppert. Exceptional pair of Polo Grounds passes represents a professional courtesy from the New York Yankees owner's neighbor across the Harlem River, with each sterling silver charm engraved on verso "Col. Jacob Ruppert & Party. 10." The regal lineage only tells half the story however, as these highly collectible passes represent both halves of a charming and comical "series." The earlier pass pictures three fans viewing the action on the field with tense expectation. Text above them reads, "2 Out, Bases Full, 3 Balls, 2 Strikes." On the pass issued the following season, these same three figures have gone limp. One rests his head in his hands. Above them reads the simple text, "Fanned Out." Each is stamped on verso, "Lambert Bros., N.Y., Sterling" and shows only light tarnishing to indicate seven decades of life. Highly desirable in any case, the Ruppert provenance makes this silver pair pure gold.

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