Offered is an extraordinarily difficult 1953-54 Briggs Meats Washington Senators Erwin Porterfield card. In either a stroke of brilliance or buffoonery, each card served as part of the waxy cardboard packing, pressed against the fresh meat until opened by the prospective collector. Most mothers would not allow their sons to keep the cards because of the fluids that were on the packaging, so this tough regional issue has become one of the most sought after in the hobby. The presented card is in better than average condition exhibiting a few light creases and the commonly found moderate staining on the backs where the hot dogs once rested. Trimmed nicely to the common size of 2-1/4 x 3-3/8 this treasure will undoubtedly command the reverence and respect finally due.
