1903 E107 Breisch-Williams Cy Young
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $7,638
Graded POOR 10 by SGC. Extremely rare E107 Breisch-Williams series card featuring Hall of Fame pitcher Cy Young of the Boston Americans. This card has numerous condition problems, but it still has a very pleasing appearance, and is a card that would be a welcome and exciting addition to many types of collections, and at a level far more affordable level than the fortune this important card would sell for in higher grade. As pitcher of the 1903 Red Sox, and having just led them to victory in the first World Series, Young is one of the most significant players in the entire E107 set, and, of course, one of the greatest pitching legends of his era. 1903 marked Cy Young's fourteenth season in the Major Leagues. Despite his advancing age, he proved he was still one of the top hurlers in the game, finishing the year with a 28-9 record and 2.08 ERA. Few prewar card sets 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 can also be credited with establishing the general design for most of the candy and tobacco issues of the 1910 era. This is a very attractive low-grade example of one of Cy Young's rarest and most noteworthy cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $7,638
