1911-12 C55 #2 Joe Hall RC (SGC 4)


HOF rookie card, pre WW I!


Gorgeous early hockey tobacco card, featuring Hall of Famer, “Bad” Joe Hall. His nickname was accurate as by all accounts Hall was one mean SOB on the ice. Newspaper accounts of the day paint a picture of a violent defenseman who punished his opponents (and even officials) often, with plenty of wild stories of mayhem. He was also a talented player as well and made the HOF on his hockey abilities. Unfortunately, he died young, while a member of the 1919 Montreal Canadiens. While in Seattle competing for the Stanley Cup that year many members of both teams caught the Spanish Flu, part of the worldwide Influenza epidemic. The series was cancelled midstream, and Hall died days later. This Rookie Card is from the second hockey set ever issued, the colorful Imperial Tobacco (designated C-55) set of 1911-12. Pre-WW I hockey is among the rarest and most collectible cards in the hobby!
