Winning Bid  $5,000
Prior to the summer of 2008, an amazing find of 72 1929 John Dockman cards were discovered in their original box. The collection included 4 Babe Ruths, a Walter Johnson, Lou Gehrig and 66 non baseball cards. Single copies of Ruth and Gehrig were the only 1929 Star Candies previously known. The Ruth is offered in the original pack (2”x 3”) which was issued in a glassine envelope along with little balls of candy or gum. The card appears to be excellent and appears to have a slight crease in the lower left corner. Two of the Ruth’s were auctioned separately in a 2009 REA auction and brought $9,400 and $9,988 plus the buyers premium. A link to that auction is available on request. Winning Bid $5,000
