1909 E90 Chief Bender American Caramel - PSA 3 - Phil.
- Source: eBay
I'm offering this week a very nice card of one of baseball's great Hall-of-Fame pitchers, Chief Bender of the Philadelphia Athletics. This 1909 E90 American Caramel card is graded a PSA 3 with no qualifiers and looks very nice. Insurance is available, but I don't know w the final price will land; it says "not offered" below, but I will provide insurance at the cost that the post office charges me if you wish to have it.More about the player: Possessing a solid fastball, excellent curveball and outstanding control, Charles Albert Â"ChiefÂ" Bender also developed a slider to help him win 212 games during his 16-year major league career. He led the American League in winning percentage during three seasons, tossed a no-hitter in 1910 and retired from the game with 1,711 strikeouts. Bender also pitched in five World Series, going 6-4 with an ERA of 2.44. A member of the Chippewa tribe and a graduate of the Carlisle Indian School, Bender overcame subtle discrimination, and a derisive nickname, to become one of the top pitchers of his era. Â"If I had all the men I've ever handled and they were in their prime and t was one game I wanted to win above all others, Albert would be my man.Â" Â-- Connie Mack |
