The “ghost image” error on the reverse of Scott’s card is becoming increasingly desirable among a growing subset of collectors. The image was usually caused one of two ways during the printing process. In many cases, either ink was distributed too heavily or the card stock being used was overly porous, allowing for bleed-through to the card’s reverse. Alternately, another common cause for the “ghosting” would happen when cards were being printed rapidly and lacked adequate drying time. As sheets of cards stacked one atop the other as they came off the press, wet ink from lower sheets leached onto the sheets above them, resulting in the “ghost” anomaly. The man on the face of this card holds a significant place in baseball history. Scott was baseball’s first Iron Man, playing in 1,307 consecutive games, beginning on June 20, 1916 and ending on May 6, 1925. When former teammate Lou Gehrig eclipsed Scott’s record in August 1933 against the St. Louis Browns, Scott was at Sportsman’s Park as a guest of the home team to witness the passing of the torch. Ironically, Gehrig also succeeded Scott as Yankee team captain.
