Description

    Possibly Unique Circa 1910 W. D. Schmidt & Company Tailors Ed Walsh Premium. This is the only example we have been able to confirm. A premium this impressive must have been distributed sparingly. Measuring a huge 11x13-1/4" on thick card stock, this giveaway certainly must have only found a home to the most generous customers of the W. D. Schmidt & Company of Chicago. The subject is Chicago White Sox and future Hall of Fame pitcher Ed Walsh. The pinnacle achievement of his career is his 40 wins in 1908 on a surprisingly thin 1.42 ERA. There is overall staining, a pair of small areas of paper loss, a dust shadow along the right edge and some edge chipping. The top border is designed to accommodate a string hanger which is still intact. The bottom reads, "Compliments of W. D. Schmidt & Company, Merchant Tailors, Chicago, "The Standard All Wool Line". Some careful cleaning would certainly enhance the appearance but it is hard to argue condition when you are referring to an amazing premium where another like copy may not exist.

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