Description

Released over three years from the General Baking Company, offered is a 1911-1914 D304 Napoleon Lajoie. Coming from one of the more difficult bakery "D" issues, and portraying this deadball star at the height of his career, this piece has been graded a "20" by SGC. Revealing wear associated with the technical grade, this Class of 1937 Hall of Famer is shown in an expressive running pose. The multi-colored background presents quite well and essentially offsets the obtrusive technical flaws. The reverse reveals some paper pulling and loss. This specimen is one of only three to have been graded by the third party grading service.
