(LOT 18)
1910 E98 Hal Chase Red Blank Swamp Find PSA 8 NM-MT

BLACK SWAMP CARD!!! "Prince Hal" as he was commonly referred to, while not a Hall of Famer, was considered by many pre-WWII experts (including Babe Ruth) as the greatest all around 1st baseman. Unfortunately for Chase, his alleged gambling tendencies eventually led to his banishment from baseball as well as Cooperstown. Yet, as with the infamous "Black Sox Eight", it is this legacy that has ultimately created a significant following with a myriad of enthusiasts scrambling to capture his most prized artifacts. Such is the case for this unfathomable PSA 8 "Black Swamp" E98 offering. After scouring this card, most would agree that virtually every technical aspect is worthy of the "Mint 9" assessment including a captivating Chase throwing image, gleaming surfaces and blistering sharp corner tips. While we can only assume that the somewhat skewed image favoring the left edge prevents a higher grade, its overall aesthetic brilliance easily places it as one of "Price Hal's" highly coveted marvels!

MIN BID $300
