Although Frank Fanovich never pitched an inning for the inaugural Baltimore Orioles, the pitcher is memorialized on this 1954 Esskay Meats issue. Of the numerous Esskay Meats samples to have been auctioned by Huggins and Scott, this is the first Fanovich example to have surfaced. This high-grade specimen presents (EX-MT to NM) with a precise scissor cut and a hint of the original orange bordering along the top edge. The blank reverse is clean, with typical hot dog grease markings and a minor crease that does not protrude onto the obverse. When coupling scarcity and condition, this important specimen is perfect for those chasing this elusive set.
