Outfielder Ody Abbott had an eight-year minor league career, punctuated by a brief, 22-game stay with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1910.  Not much of a hitter (his lifetime minor league batting average was .246), he managed two seasons with Oakland of the PCL as a part-time player in 1912 and 13, seeing action in 57 games.

Still, Abbott's image found its way onto a baseball card in one of the more rare issues of the day, the 1913 Oakland Oaks team set.  Similar in size and appearance to the Zeenut cards of the era, the method of distribution of these cards is largely lost to history, the 20-card set containing no nationally-known players.  Still highly sought after by prewar collectors, this is one of fewer than 30 graded examples from the entire issue, and the highest-graded of just two cards of Abbott.  A very difficult type card.
