(LOT 21)
1910 E98 Russ Ford Black Swamp Find Red SGC 96 MINT 9

BLACK SWAMP!!! Russ Ford just happens to be only the third pitcher in MLB history to win 20 games and strikeout 200 or batters in his rookie season, accomplishing the feat with the New York Highlanders in 1910. Ford won a staggering 26 games that season and ended his 7-year career with 99 wins and a stellar 2.59 E.R.A! The sheer beauty of vintage card collecting is the incredible desirability of common players based on their coupled remarkable aesthetics and grade, and this Ford marvel certainly fits nicely into that obscure category. Its SGC 96 MINT 9 assessment is appropriately based on the brilliant Ford central image, rich red setting, seemingly flawless surfaces, sharp perimeter edging, blinding white borders, right-angled corners and near-perfect centering. A winner in every conceivable manner, it arguably stands as one of Russ Ford's most amazing cardboard artifacts!
