Graded 10 PR 1 by SGC. Pose 222-4. A startlingly small but nevertheless clear and fully recognizable incarnation of Hardie Henderson occupies the center of this eye-catching insert. The left and right edges have a slightly irregular border cut providing minimal distraction. Virtually all “Mini’s” of this kind were excised many years ago from Goodwin ad pieces; accordingly, they’re typically holdered as “Authentic,” rather than being assigned a numerical grade, as this example has been. Minis are true rarities with one coming to market every several years. The genesis of a mini is an interesting story indeed, and is explained in full detail in the classic publication “The Photographic Baseball Cards of Goodwin & Co” by Miller, Masson and Gonsowski. Poor condition.
