1910 E221 Bishop & Co Los Angeles PCL Team Card

Starting Bid - $800.00, Sold For - $4,025.00

Offered is the Los Angeles club (blue background) from the E221 Bishop PCL team card series. E221 Bishop Team cards are among the rarest of all "E card" issues, and one of the most highly prized of all PCL issues. Distributed by Bishop & Company of Los Angeles, E221s are noted for their brightly colored backgrounds (red, blue, yellow, purple, or green), unusual design, and extreme rarity. These team photographs were issued as premiums in five-cent packages of Bishop's Milk Chocolate. There were six teams in the PCL in 1910, but to date only five different Bishop Team cards are known. The sixth team (Sacramento) has yet to surface, suggesting that it may have never been issued. E221s measure 10 x 2.75 inches. They are printed on thin stock and are therefore particularly susceptible to damage. The offered example is an uncommonly sharp, high-grade sample. Please note that all E221s have a single thin vertical centerfold, as this is how they were issued. Ex-Mt. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500. SOLD FOR $4,025.00
