Description

Although he had only nine career at bats for the expansion Baltimore Orioles, Neil Berry is immortalized on this 1954 Esskay Meats issue. This scarce relic is highlighted by traces of orange advertising trim along the upper and left edge. This evenly cut regional issue has a visual presentation of (EX) with right edge creasing as its only serious flaw. The reverse reveals typical hot dog grease markings along with a light crease, which does not protrude the obverse. A similar Berry example sold in our October 2008 auction for over five figures, and this scarcity presents better.
