Don't know what it is exactly but it was expensive:



I suspect it is from a set that I've not been able to catalog but that has a Fitzsimmons that I've known of for years.

More info on McGovern:

The card arrived today. It is machine-cut, measuring exactly 1.5" across and 2.25" tall. Blank back and thick cardboard. Similar to a Mayo in thickness. I thought it was a half-tone print but under magnification it is photo-engraved, which indicates it was created some time around the turn of the 20th century. Makes sense since McGovern's career ended in 1908.

I saw this card on eBay when it came up and was interested in what it was. Do you have a photo of the Fitzsimmons you mentioned earlier by chance? Ive never seen anything from whatever this set was before

Picked this up after it was graded. It ended up a PSA 5.5. Looked 6ish to me, but I'm happy with it.

Default 1922 exhibit - Johnny Red Dolan

Not my wheelhouse but anything this old is worth the pickup... Anyone familiar with these and how rare (or not) they may be?

Thanks!

I cover all the Exhibit cards in my book. The 1922 set is tougher than 1921, easier than 1923.

I got one PC recently:



This kind of single event PC is like pizza to me: can't resist it. Checks all the boxes:

--Vintage
--Rare
--HOFer depicted
