As the author of multiple World Series heroics, Gene Woodling came to the Baltimore Orioles with much fanfare. Although he largely failed to deliver, Woodling still did get to appear on this very tough 1955 Esskay Meats complete box. The single-card portrait is enveloped by a prize coupon, text from Bobo Newsom’s promotional campaign and ornate equipment-themed paneling. Despite multiple creases that trace throughout the entire box and moderate cardboard bowing, the 7x8 prize still exhibits an electric color scheme and an overall beautiful appearance. Interestingly, all four tabs are uncreased, while the cardboard reverse has sustained moderate hot dog grease impressions associated with the issue. The winning combination of the All-Star subject and beloved regional issue found in its original state makes this relic an ideal acquisition for the winning bidder.
