After concluding his major league career at the close of the 1917 season, Hall of Famer Sam Crawford moved west, settling in Peco, California and playing four seasons with the Los Angeles Angels, batting .360 in 1919 and leading the league in hits, ending his playing career after batting .318 in 1921.  Presented here is one of Wahoo Sam's two Zeenut PCL cards.  Extremely scarce and desirable, the card pictures Crawford in uniform, the faded image of a stadium grandstand in the background.  This card has been graded FAIR 1.5 by SGC, due to corner and edge wear along with an irregular cut at the bottom where the coupon once resided.  Additional surface wear and light soiling is also evident.  This card is scarce enough that examples only make themselves publicly available for sale once ever year or two; this is just the second example we have handled in ten years.  An extraordinary card, one of the final playing days cards of the popular Hall of Famer.
