    Description

    From the St. Louis Find of 2019.

    1916 Famous & Barr Baseball Near Set (197/200) - #1 "All Time Finest" on the PSA Set Registry! The St. Louis find of 2019 was a collection of hundreds of cards from 1909 "T" and "E" cards to 1933 Goudey. Included were some rarities and multiple cards of Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner and Babe Ruth. The crowning jewel of the collection was the Famous & Barr Babe Ruth rookie card that graded PSA EX-MT 6 and sold in the Heritage August 2019 Platinum night auction for $540,000! Offered is a 197-card set minus #151, #86 and #176. The Famous & Barr set is interesting in that cards are found following the checklists for both M101-4 and M101-5 rosters. You'll note Mordecai Brown is found here on card #'s 17 and 23. This presentation is remarkable both in its completeness and overall quality. Almost 80% of the set is EX or nicer. Every card has a PSA total pop under ten, most under five actually. Dozens of cards have "Pop One With None Higher!" status!
