Default Why Shag?

I'm putting together a mini-subset of T206s: the Virginia League SLers. Two players each from six teams. All but one (Al Orth) are portraits and none are big names and most can be had fairly cheaply - except Shag Shaughnessy who always seems to be priced at a premium over the other 11.

Any conspiracy theories or ideas why Shag brings a premium over the other Va League SLers? Is there some unspoken 'Titus' effect or am I missing something? or am I just imaging this?

Distant ancestor of Kramer?

Same image was later used for the U.S. $20 bill.

No conspiracy. See the Wikipedia article Val linked to. He spent decades as a minor league baseball manager and executive, and a college baseball, football, and hockey coach. Hes in the Canadian Football Hall of Fame, the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, and the International League Hall of Fame.

Seriously, just look at the card. It is magnificent. One of the finest images on a card. He's like Dracula on this one. The Count.

Actually, like Titus, someone has hoarded him.

Unlike Titus, he is legit more difficult than other cards in the set. An interesting baseball man...his WWG card makes a dandy companion.

This! He was as important as anybody in organized sports for decades.

As a side note SHAG is also pictured on one of the 1964 Topps Banquet cards as well, he is pictured along with Jackie Robinson and Joel Shorin (President of Topps Chewing Gum). Pretty interesting card.
