Only Graded! Near impossible 1910 Schmelzer's Sporting Goods Rabbit Maranville pin! Graded EX 5 by PSA. The Hall of Fame infielder is portrayed at the outset of his lengthy career on this 1-1/4" celluloid badge which features a generic ball player to the left of Maranville's cameo. The star's position is neatly placed in period script. The reverse lining of the Kansas City manufacturer is well centered and tightly attached. With deference to slight rusting on the back rim, this truly rare example still exhibits superior eye appeal.
Note: Due to the lack of examples, the dating of this issue is speculative. However, it probably isn't 1910 as Maranville made his major league debut two seasons later.
