Author of a 14-year career which never touched the majors, third baseman Roy Akin (misspelled on his card) is pictured here with the Los Angeles Angels.  Akin only played one season in the PCL - 1911 - the remainder of his career spent mostly in the Texas League.  This card, from the very rare T217 Mono Cigarettes issue, has been graded PR 1 by SGC, with virtually every flaw a card can have.  The grade, in this case, is less important, however, as the issue is extremely rare, and desirable among advanced collectors regardless of grade.
