(LOT 551)
1926 W512 #9 Rogers Hornsby "Giants – Hand-Cut" SGC 8.5 NM-MT+ "POP 1" Giants - Hand-Cut; Highest Graded SGC Example for all Versions!

"POP 1" RAJAH!!!... By 1926, the immortal Cardinals second-sacker Rogers Hornsby had established himself as baseball's greatest right-handed hitter. Statistically speaking, Hornsby's numbers certainly supported that claim with six consecutive batting titles, the highest NL modern-day average (.424 in 1924), and most incredibly, averaging .400 over the past five consecutive seasons (1921-1925). The 1926 campaign would see this legendary player/manager lead St. Louis to a World Series title, with his Redbirds besting the Yankees in a classic seven-game match. Hornsby's underrated W512 #9 strip card was issued that same championship season portraying a classic Hornsby portrait image, and is presented here in its "Giants - Hand-Cut" version as a bona fide POP 1 SGC 8.5 NM-MT+ marvel. SGC's census report indicates this is the SOLE and HIGHEST GRADED "Giants - Hand-Cut" Hornsby, with its pinnacle Pop standing tantamount with The Rajah's unparalleled batting feats!
