Graded MINT 96(9) by SGC. "Prince Hal", was a first baseman in Major League Baseball, widely viewed as the best fielder at his position. During his career, he played for the New York Highlanders (1905–1913), Chicago White Sox (1913–1914), Buffalo Blues (1914–1915), Cincinnati Reds (1916–1918), and New York Giants (1919). No lesser figures than Babe Ruth and Walter Johnson named him the best first baseman ever, and contemporary reports describe his glovework as outstanding. He is sometimes considered the first true star of the franchise that would eventually become the New York Yankees. In 1981, 62 years after his last major league game, baseball historians Lawrence Ritter and Donald Honig included him in their book The 100 Greatest Baseball Players of All Time. The featured card is one of just 2 copies that has been graded MINT 9 by SGC out of the 41 copies of the card that have traveled through the New Jersey based grading company. Spectacular centering as well as four undisputed MINT corners command the hobbyists attention. A stunning card offered at the very top end of the opined grade.
