Default 154 F-50 Yuenglings at PA estate sale today

Posted By: Peck

I attended an estate sale this morning in Spring Glen, PA that had a rather large find of 1928 Yuengling Ice Cream cards. There were a total of 154 cards that included 6 Ty Cobbs and 5 Lou Gehrigs. The cards were sold in ten lots of 15 cards each and one lot of four cards. Choice lot with the best Cobb and Gehrig brought $2150. Missed the price for the rest of the lots. The cards there included 53 of the 60 cards in the set. No Babe Ruth and #48 Earl Smith was also absent. Can anyone provide a scan of a Yuengling #48 Earl Smith to prove the card actually exist?

Yuengling's is still an active corporation, right? I wonder if they have any information in file or somewhere. I doubt it, but it would be interesting if they did.

Yuengling Brewery is still'a brewing. I would imagine Ice Cream is one of the things they produced during prohabition. I believe it is still a "family" run business, and I know there are still a lot of Yuengling's living in "South-Central" PA. I went to school with a few of them back at ol' Dickinson College.* In other words, a local person with some time and interest on his hands, could probably find out a thing or two.

"Where'd this friend o' yours go to college?" says Carey.

"I forget now," says Ike.

"Was it Carlisle? "ast Carey.

"No," says Ike, "his folks wasn't very well off."

"That's what barred me from Smith," I says.

I can’t add too much information but I was at the sale this afternoon (a nice 7 hour drive) and picked up one of the lots with a Gehrig and split another lot with a board member. It was a nice sale with some quality cards.

Yuengling's, headquartered in Pottsville, PA, touts itself as "America's Oldest Brewery". If that is indeed the case, you'd think that they might have figured out how to make a lager that *didn't* taste like crap. Every one of their concoctions is as putrid as a typical Coach's Corner auction. Then again, they're based out of an area where teeth are considered "bling" (believe me--I spent three years there!).

Jay,

No offense intended at any exceptions to the rule.

I must confess, I'm from Canada, so am a touch spoiled when it comes to quality beer!

I said to Zach before the battlin started...."If one of us gets that first high bid for $1000 a sheet, we'll just take them all and split em down the middle some how after the smoke clears". Didn't work out that way, but with the exception of Peck, I think everyone that had an interest in the cards walked away from the auction happy.

Afterwards, Zach and I met a guy that was working on a Tharps set as well as a Yuengling set, a Yuengling family member who is 4 cards shy of a set (needed both #48 and the Ruth), and a fellow who just collected vintage Yuengling related items, and in addition to seeing Zach, I had the pleasure of meeting his grandfather too.

There was a large find of NearMint and better Yuengling's that walked into last years' National in Cleveland. Multiple cards of everyone except Ruth & Cobb. The grandaughter of a factory worker or something like that. I would assume if one factory worker kept some, others did as well and they'll surface from time-to-time.

Ouch Jodi!

I'm a Yuengling fan. It's my "cheap" beer of choice. I drink a ton of it.

As far as I knew, it was not that cheap anymore. From what I hear, it used to be, until it became popular with the college crowd in the early 1990's. Either way, I'd enter a twelve-step program before hoisting a Yuengling to my lips.

Yuengling is my favorite beer for under $20 a case. Actually, I was surprised at how much Coors costs now, that was the cheap beer of choice when I was in high school. I was also a bit taken aback when I saw that my beloved Pabst shot up from $11 a case to almost $14 a case this year. Stuff like Dead Guy Ale and Flying Dog are few and far between with my two boys and a tighter beer budget these days for me.

Great pick-ups on the cards guys, the Gehrig is one of my favorites:
