Description



Graded EX-MT 6 by BVG. Billed as a "Great Wagner Poster in Colors" on the cover of the February 1915 issue of Baseball Magazine, the offered premium of the legendary "Flying Dutchman" is the first such example validated by any major grading service. Measuring nearly 6-5/8 x 9-1/2", the wonderful illustration of the grizzled veteran was authored by J.F. Kernan. Beneath the portrait of "Hans" Wagner is the admonition to "cut this out and frame." Has survived the century in fine condition with brilliant colors and only moderately worn corners and edges. Two sets of factory produced staple holes are nestled discreetly to the left of the portrayal.
