Description

Utility catcher Robert Oldis may not have had much of a big league career, but he shines on this 1953-1954 Briggs Meat issue. Along with Esskay's and Hunter's Weiners, the Briggs Meats issues are among the most coveted by 1950s regional devotees. This crease-free exemplar reveals immense coloring and a beautiful period Senators uniform. Despite errant scissor cutting, and minimal staining associated with the series on the front and reverse, the aesthetics on this specimen are difficult to parallel. With only a handful of copies in existence, this scarcity is a definite coup for the "hot dog" collector.
