Lot 72. 1914 Pritchard Yale Baseball Club complete set of 12 stamps.

Winning Bid  $300
A very rare set of stamps was issued by Pritchard Publishing in 1914 featuring New York Giants baseball players. Even rarer are the stamps issued of the Yale Baseball team of that year. All the stamps, which measure 1 13/16” x 2 3/4". have an excellent appearance from the front. All the stamps have the same design with a Yale pennant at the top and crossed bats and baseballs at the bottom with the players portrait in an oval. Remarkably only two of the twelve are missing the original gum on the back. The remainder do show the area where a hinge was or some other minor disturbance. The twelve players in the set are as follows: FT Blossom, CC Brown, PG Cornish, PJ Falsey, CM Gile, JS Hanes, WA Hunter, WS Harpham, LS Middlebrook, HA Pumpelly, JS Reilly; RV Vaughn. It’s interesting to note that Peter Falsey was the only one to make the majors with the Pirates in 1914 and he struck out in his only appearance. This is believed to be his only “card”. An enlarged scan of the set is available on request. Also see lot 173. Winning Bid $300
