1903 E107 Breisch-Williams Sam Leever
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $1,645.00
Graded GOOD 30 by SGC. Striking E107 Breisch-Williams card of pitcher Sam Leever (dressed in street attire) from the Pittsburgh Pirates of the National League. Leever was a regular of the Pirate pitching staff during the heyday of Honus Wagner. In 1903, his best year, he led the NL in winning percentage, ERA, and shutouts. Two of his twenty-five wins came in a string of six consecutive shutouts, still the Major League record. Near the end of that season, he injured his shoulder while trapshooting, a second sport at which he also excelled. As a result, he had a sore arm during the 1903 World Series and lost twice to the Red Sox. Rare and important card from the legendary E107 Breisch-Williams series. Slight staining on the reverse is responsible for the harsh grading. This card has a much stronger appearance than its SGC-assigned grade. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,645.00
