Although Jimmie (Hot Rod) McDonald twirled his way to a 7.14 ERA, the pitcher is still all smiles on this scarce 1955 Esskay Meats complete box. As only the second McDonald in any form offered by Huggins & Scott, this elusive portrait of the Floridian displays incredibly well. A 3 vertical crease along the right portion of the image along with other peripheral wrinkling, notching and additional creasing are the only noticeable flaws. The four tabs are tightly attached to the container with only one having sustained a minor wrinkle. The cardboard reverse is clean with moderate bowing and faint hot dog grease impressions typical to the issue. As one of the tougher samples to locate in the coveted 1955 Esskay Meats issue, this storeroom survivor will assuredly garner much interest.
