Lot 129. A pair of Simplicity Post cards created just before the 1907 World Series.

Winning Bid  $550
The Cubs won the series 4-1 and the card showing the Tiger in the coffin was the only one actually issued. That card is in ex-mt condition. The card showing the winning Cubs in the coffin was never issued has several creases but is extremely rare. It should be noted that there is extra paper with a dotted line on the right side. The Simplicity Company was hedging their bets and prepared both cards with the intention of only releasing the correct one showing the losing team in the coffin. Winning Bid $550
