1903 E107 Breisch-Williams Jimmy Collins
Starting Bid - $1,000.00 , Sold For - $4,406.25
Graded GOOD 2 (MK) by PSA. Outstanding E107 Breisch-Williams series card featuring Hall of Fame third baseman Jimmy Collins of the Boston Americans. As third baseman and manager of the 1903 Red Sox, and having just led them to victory in the first World Series, Collins is one of the most significant players in the entire E107 set. Despite the modest PSA grade, this is a stunning card. Bright and clean, with evenly rounded corners, and centered to the right with a slight “diagonal cut.” Downgraded and qualified (MK) by PSA for having a stamp hinge stain (of no consequence in our opinion) on the blank reverse, and the slightest hint of a remnant of writing. Collins was the greatest third baseman of his era. He led his league's third basemen in putouts five times, assists four times, double plays twice, and still stands second all-time in career putouts at third base. Collins was player-manager of the Red Sox in the American League's first six seasons, leading Boston to a victory over Pittsburgh in the inaugural World Series in 1903, the same year this card was issued. This is a very attractive example of this extremely important card with a far superior appearance than suggested by its harsh PSA grade. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $4,406.25
