Graded GOOD 30 by SGC. Very attractive double-player pose Kalamazoo Bats tobacco card of A's shortstop Arthur Irwin tagging out pitcher Al Maul. Although the image contrast on this card is a little light, the outdoor action image is unusual and visually exciting. Downgraded by SGC due to a heavy crease in the lower right (visible when held horizontally as intended) and several light surface wrinkles on the blank reverse. This is one of the very few distinctive and extremely desirable Kalamazoo Bats two-player cards that make the set all the more fascinating among nineteenth-century tobacco-card issues. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
