(LOT 27)
1910 E98 Hippo Vaughn Black Swamp Find Red SGC 96 MINT 9

HIPPO!!! This sensational SGC 96 Hippo Vaughn offering reveals aesthetics synonymous with virtually any of the Mint 9 Black Swamp cards. Vaughn received his popular nickname due to his running gait, with the stellar southpaw notching 20 or more victories five different seasons. As a testament to his superb pitching prowess, the Chicago Cubs southpaw posted an incredible 2.49 lifetime E.R.A., and was bested 1-0 by the immortal Babe Ruth in the 1918 World Series opener. After losing another well pitched 2-1 game, he did come back to post a 3-0 shutout win, finishing the series with a remarkable 1.00 E.R.A! Likewise, his representation on this irrefutable rarity portrays championship caliber as the standout left-hander completes one of his baffling pitches. Stellar resolution, a seemingly flawless bold red setting, virtually "dead-on" 50/50 centering and snow-white borders all substantiate the technical assessment that via this iconic Ohio attic find, simply defies "Father Time"!
