Along with the Series 8 card of Shoeless Joe Jackson, the Casey Stengel card is one of the two key rarities of the T210 Old Mill issue.  The first pro card of the future "Old Perfessor," Casey is depicted here as an outfielder with the Maysville Rivermen of the Blue Grass League.  Stengel would play three minor league seasons with nine different teams prior to launching his legendary major league career with Brooklyn in 1912.

Culled from the issue's sixth series, the Stengel is an extreme rarity, with fewer than 20 graded examples known.  Due to its extreme rarity and desirability, the card rarely appears at public auction; we can find nore more than a handful of examples to have come to auction in recent years.  This example is a new discovery, sold ungraded to a well-known hobby dealer by a longtime collector; the dealer, in turn, consigned it to us.  The card received a grade of PR 1 by PSA due to overall wear including a pronounced crease across the top third of the card.  It is, of course, not the condition but the rarity of the card that lends it's appeal; a T210 Stengel is a very important card in any grade.

One of the more widely sought-after cards of all the tobacco issues, and certainly one of the more rare, a newly-discovered example of the "rookie" card of Hall of Fame manager Casey Stengel, one of the game's most popular and lovable figures.
