1923-24 La Moda card of Freddie Fitzsimmons, a long-time big league pitcher who won 217 between his 13 seasons with the New York Giants and 7 seasons with the Brooklyn Dodgers. His MLB career began in 1925, so this card pre-dates his big league debut.

 

The La Moda cards, which are variations of 1923-24 Billiken cards, are extremely rare. SGC has graded a total of 9 cards from the set. This one is graded a 2. There are only 3 cards graded this high or higher, with the highest being a 4. About half of the know examples have had the borders completely trimmed of, so ones with full borders are highly sought after.
