Default What is considered Gabby Hartnett's rookie card?

I was wondering what people viewed as Gabby Hartnett's rookie card?

Is it:

1922 E120 American Caramel
1923-24 Exhibits

Something else?

Here is a link to Gabby Hartnett's listing of rookie cards that is located in the Old Cardboard website, reference library section.

I would consider the 1922 E120 American Caramel to be his "Rookie" card, but if someone really wanted to argue I would accept that the 1922 W573 strip card could be considered his "true" rookie also, especially since they used the same image on them and came out in the same year.

Though I think any of his single player Exhibits have a much better image of him, I consider none of them to be his "Rookie" cards, some of his Exhibits are a lot rarer than his other cards from the era though, and if your trying to put together a complete set of Hartnett cards, you may be waiting a few years to just see a couple of his Exhibit cards, much less find them for sale.

+1

Not sure when his 1921-30 ML Die-Cuts came out, but that would be a distant third IMO to the E120 and W573 as far as the "best" Hartnett rookie.

Default Bookending the thread...



..I don't know if there is a term for the last card of an active player but the thread topic made me dig out his 1939 Exhibit --I couldn't find any listings for him in any of the 1939 , 1940 , or 1941 sets----he was pretty old and a bit portly and with the New York Giants by then....this one is a short print , a decent survivor and only the pinhole at 12 o'clock made it remotely affordable....
