1910 Notebook Proof

Post by bowlingshoeguy on Mon Feb 20, 2012 5:19 am

I won this tonight and the seller also had a Waddell (Jeff did you win it) and Cy Young all SGC A with Proof designation. Any idea why the "Proof " designation?

I have a feeling this "proof" is going to end up in a buyer's remorse thread down the road!

Even if it is not a "Proof" I think it is a great item. Quite ornamental and will display nice. I am just curious how they determined it was a "proof".

There's a discussion on the other board re the Waddell that was sold last night.

Looks like the "proof" designation comes because this was cut from a sheet that was deemed to be a proof sheet. That sheet was sold in Mastro April 2002. There were 3 each of: Young, Matty, Waddell, Cobb, and Criger. The presence of Criger was cited as evidence that this was not some sort of "fantasy" piece.

Here's a link to the Mastro auction:

Sadly it looks as though some one cut up an uncut sheet. Nice to know the background in for on it. It looks like there is only 3 of each.

Does anyone have a blown up version of the sheet uncut. I just want to verify that it came off the sheet. It appears to be the one in the top right.



Thanks

Nice piece Lee....i'm sure 5 years ago it would have went for 5X that price.

Confirmed cut up in REA, I'd say it most definitely is the top corner cover.
