The offered 1954 Esskay Meats Gil Coan is the first known to be offered for public sale. While it is uncertain if Coan (who banged the first base hit in modern franchise history) is a shortprint, this regional “hot dog” sample is atop many regional wantlists. Presents in (GD) condition with a horizontal crease that encompasses the middle of the card. The original orange bordering is visible along the left edge, while the blank back is clean. Additionally, the period scissor cut is much nicer than many other examples to have surfaced.
