Description

The preeminent figure of the scarce Esskay series is the Don Larsen, in the midst of a forgettable season. Only two years from being etched into the pantheon of World Series lore, Larsen lost twenty games for the inaugural 1954 Orioles. Larsen appears none the worse in this off-grade 1954 Esskay example. With a rougher cut, staining, multiple creasing and other associated wear, this Larsen RC still is quite presentable. Finding a 1954 Esskay issue of any player in any condition is difficult enough, so when a key figure such as Larsen is introduced, the excitement escalates. A prime example in this exceptionally difficult Baltimore "hot dog" issue.
