Hall of Famer Fred Clarke batted a stellar .312 lifetime over a 21 year career with both the Louisville Colonels and Pittsburgh Pirates. In addition, he managed both the Louisville and Pittsburgh clubs from 1897 – 1915, racking up over 1,600 wins and serving as the incomparable Honus Wagner’s manager most of his career. Clarke is one of the few Cooperstown inductees that could have been inducted as either a player or manager, and likewise, his representation on this breathtaking card reflects all of the qualities required for a Cooperstown worthy baseball card. The ultra-desirable classic Carl Horner portrait pose depicts unequivocal facial tints, contrast and focus, ably assisted by a flawless crimson red background. Although the central image favors the upper right edges, the flawless central image, blinding white borders, and pointed corner tips. Further complimenting this near pristine example is the bold mid-night blue “Piedmont Cigarette 150 Subjects” reverse side advertisement, the final compliment to a century old card that radiates most of the pristine qualities associated with a “pack-fresh” card.
