Gorgeous horizontal T3 of Charles "Boss" Schmidt, an erstwhile boxer who once broke Ty Cobb's nose with a punch. Also infamous for making the last out in two consecutive Fall Classics, he generated far more press than offense. A wonderfully pastel purple and blue sky and inviting green grass accentuate an intriguing pose of the Tigers backstop. Graded VG 3 by SGC, the wear on this card is primarily on the outside border, frame particularly the corners while the presentation is marvelous. This example has the Turkey Red ad back, which has some black residue from an old attachment to an album page and a small spot of paper loss in one of the blank parts.
