A featherweight champion nicknamed "The Little Hebrew," Abe Attell is perhaps better known for his other claim to fame—or infamy—as a key gambling figure in the 1919 Black Sox scandal. This EX-condition assembly is highlighted by a quartet of 1900s-1920s cards (1909 Ogden's, 1910 T218 and 1920s "W") and a 1940s signed souvenir photo frame from Attell's restaurant. Full photo LOA from JSA. More on our website.
