    Extremely Rare 1930's Ray Schalk (HoF) 200+ Piece Jig Saw Puzzle Plus Original Box. Hall of Famer Ray Schalk had a lengthy career from 1912 to 1929. Almost every game he played or managed was with Charles Comiskey's Chicago White Sox. Upon retiring, Schalk became manager of the Buffalo Bisons of the International League from 1932 to 1937. Of the huge number of possible promotions, a 200+ piece, 11x14" jig saw puzzle of Manager Schalk was made to draw fans. We can only assume other player puzzles were made as well but are not surprised the only Baseball HoFer on the team was saved. The team piggy backed the promotion with a ticket give-away program, offering "45 Season tickets, 400 Box Seat tickets and 2,000 Reserved Seat tickets." All as advertised on the cover of the original box which is included. The puzzle carries a serial number which fans need to match from a prize drawing. The puzzle is fully assembled and is beautifully matted with the original box inside a 2" deep shadowbox frame. The box is great shape all things considered, there is one tear in the front and paper tape is on the corners we assume to repair spine splitting. One piece in the lower right has been replaced blending in beautifully. A very rare and unique promotional piece.
