Description

Graded 40 VG 3 by SGC. Exceptional 1921 White’s Bakery Tip Top Bread Harry Frank portrait! Little is known of the hurler other than a quote from the 1955 book The Baltimore Orioles by Lieb which states “but a little Jewish chap, Harry Frank, playing his first season of pro-ball, was the marvel of the staff, winning 24 games out of 30." (Referencing his 1917 rookie season). Interestingly, this portrait was used for advertising purposes to promote the “gravure photos” promotion. One of only two graded with none better.

Please note the advertisement is not included in this lot.
