1910 E98 - Red Connie Mack PSA 9 MINT
MINT MACK!!! This miraculous Connie Mack Black Swamp E98 red background PSA 9 offering stands as one of only 3 specimens at this hallowed plateau with nothing graded higher! Along with Cobb, Wagner, Mathewson, Young, Collins and Brown, Connie Mack is widely regarded as one of the key subjects to the E98 Anonymous set, and his representation on this Black Swamp Find gem places it as one of the most significant cards in this renowned discovery. Connie Mack managed the Philadelphia Athletics for an unfathomable 50 consecutive years, a managerial record that most likely will never be broken.
Included in those 50 years were 9 pennant winners and 5 World Championships. Before he wore his managerial suit and Abe Lincoln like top-hat, he was a formidable 19th century player, handling every position except 3rd base and pitcher. The Hall of Fame icon never looked better than in his "reading the newspaper" pose that stands as one of the card market's most popular images. Simply stated, nearly every aspect of this card is consistent with "perfection" with the exception of the renowned image's modest favoritism towards the left edge. A remarkable Connie Mack heirloom from the Athletics Inaugural World Championship season, its Black Swamp pedigree and extraordinary aesthetics rightfully earn it an indelible mark in the collecting community!
