Description

There are few adjectives that accurately describe the impressive quality of this 1911-1914 D304 Weber Bakery Napoleon Lajoie SGC 50. This card captures five key attributes that are important to most pre-war collectors: popular Hall of Fame player, condition, eye appeal, difficult regional issue and scarce advertising back. Students of the 1911-14 D304 series understand how difficult it is to obtain a quality specimen with a Weber Bakery advertising back. This specimen is the only such example graded on the SGC population report with the subject/advertising reverse. The condition-sensitive edges and borders are well defined, with a barely noticeable corner crease, while the surface perfectly portrays Lajoie galloping through the playing field. The advertising reverse reveals inconsequential wear and does nothing to detract from the overall beauty of this centerpiece.
