1903 E107 Breisch-Williams Bill Freil (Friel)
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $2,115.00
Graded GOOD 2 by PSA. Few prewar cards compare in rarity or significance to E107 Breisch-Williams. These distinctive cards represent one of the few sets of baseball cards to be issued during the years between the popular photographic cards of the 1880s (such as Old Judge) and the many tobacco and caramel card issues of the 1910 era. E107s feature majestic black-and-white portraits, many unique to this series. In addition to their very distinctive look, they can also be credited with establishing the general design for most of the candy and tobacco issues of the 1910 era. Offered is a very strong example of St. Louis second basemen Bill Friel from this extremely rare set. Bright and crisp, both front and back, with virtually perfect centering, no creases, evenly rounded corners, and boldly printed text on the reverse. A small tape stain and very tiny chip of paper loss on the reverse keeps this card from a higher grade. This is an outstanding sample from one of card collecting's most significant sets. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $2,115.00
