1903 E107 Breisch-Williams Lave Cross
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $940.00
Graded FAIR 20 by SGC. Bright and crisp sample card from this rare issue featuring third baseman Lave Cross of the Philadelphia Athletics from the American League. Lave Cross was primarily a catcher the first part of his career. When he switched to infield positions, he played them (until the rules were changed) using his catcher's mitt. With the Phillies on August 5, 1897, he set a still-standing ML record for most assists by a second baseman in a game, with 15. He became a member of Philadelphia in 1901, the first American League season. From 1902 until 1905, he played in 447 consecutive games, all but one at third base. For seven straight seasons (1898-1904) he never batted below .290. A very striking example downgraded due to some surface paper loss on the right border and which otherwise has an Excellent appearance. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $940.00
