This card was originally a third prize winning card from a display sheet.  This is only the second time we have had the pleasure of offering a JBR 9a Starffin card at auction.   In 1950, Starffin, coming off a league leading 27 win season in 1949, slumped to an 11-15 record.  However the great Russian star, who also compiled a .237 lifetime batting average, did manage to hit .333 that season, while approaching his 300th victory on the mound.

Blank back card

Size:  Approximately 2 5/8” x 3 5/8”

Condition:  Vg/Ex to Ex.  There is some extra paper and glue residue on the blank back since the card was originally attached to a prize sheet by the manufacturer.  Every example of this card will have similar residue on the back.
