Description

Despite spending only one season with the inaugural 1954 Orioles, Ray Murray is immortalized on this initial Esskay hot dog issue. Hallmarked by orange bordering on three edges, this precisely cut beauty grades (GD-VG). Despite an encompassing crease that runs vertically along the left edge and a slight surface abrasion, the presentation quality of this card is undeniable. The reverse reveals only slight hot dog toning while the wafer-thin wax coating on each side of this card is undisturbed. With the recent boom of fifties “meat” issues, these Esskay examples reside atop many collectors wantlists.
